These foot problems can be an indicator of nervous system disorder



In regular walking, a person’s heel first touches the ground and then the toes, thereby maintaining gait, balance, posture, and mobility.

But in Parkinson’s disease, an individual’s movements become slow. The stride length is reduced which subsequently affects the ankle; for this reason, the person adopts a flat walking type. This irregular style of walking affects the foot when it strikes the ground to take a step as a result of which the individual experiences pain in the foot, leg and knee.

Muscle twitching, spasms and cramps are an indicator of the onset of Parkinson’s disease.

Curled and tight toes are also another symptom of the disease.

Due to limited movement, the affected person may also notice swelling in the ankle and feet called edema.

Experts also shed light on the foot problems seen in individuals even after administration of Parkinson’s disease medication.

Due to the medication, ankle swelling may occur as a side effect. Because of this, the legs may feel heavy and such people would find it difficult to wear shoes.
