Neurological foot exam
September 3, 2014 6:47 PM Subscribe
Purpose of exam by a physician in which you lie on your back with your legs straight and extended with your feet/toes flexed towards your face? Then the doc will try to pull your feet down and towards him? And then the reflex tool is used on the inside of the heel? Google failed me on this one. And what is this exam called?

My feet didn't respond normally (very weak toes) and the doc said something about a disc or nerve issue in my back. Perhaps T1 and T2 but I don't recall. Also something about sciatica but I have had that a few times and don't feel that I have it now. Not looking for a diagnosis, just some insight. Thanks!
