muscle tightness/permanent planta flexor

Does anyone struggle with planta flexion? My left foot is permanently on tip toes even with a splint on. Also my hamstring is very tight making in virtually impossible to straighten my leg.

Hi S,

Are you on any muscle relaxants and do you have a neurological physio? They might help.

Maybe contact your MS nurse and she can refer you to a physio. Stretching exercises are good.

Hi S

have you discussed a possible referral to a spasticity clinic? I’ve been referred as I can’t straighten my knee. There is a 6 month waiting list where I am though- typical!!
