Are you a senior and wondering why you can’t walk for longer than 15 minutes? After that you get leg weakness, numbing in your feet and hip pain that makes you sit down?
You probably have undiagnosed Lumbar Spinal Stenosis (AKA Shopping Cart Syndrome) which is a narrowing (squeezing) of the blood supply to the nerves that travel from the spine down to your feet. The cause is from degeneration (arthritis) in your low back and you will generally have a better blood supply to these nerves when you walk bent forward over a shopping cart.

Foot drop is a general term for difficulty lifting the front part of the foot.
If you have foot drop, the front of your foot might drag on the ground when you walk.
Foot drop isn’t a disease; rather it is a sign of an underlying neurological, muscular or anatomical problem.
Foot drop also puts extra stress on the hips and knees by forcing
them to bend early in the gait cycle so that the toes clear the ground to avoid tripping over them.
Thankfully there is new technology with foot drop braces to help with walking and mobility.
