What Is Club Foot Deformity?
This happens in about 1 in every 1,000 live births. It is a situation where one of your child’s feet is turned inward where the bottom of the foot faces sideways or even all the way up. This is one of the more common defects we see, but it is not something that has to affect the child for their entire life. With the treatment methods available, we can help them get a wide range of motion with very few noticeable traces of the problem.
There are several options we can choose to treat this situation with your child. For starters, some work best with a cast or bracing to help straighten the bones back into a normal position. Stretches can also be incorporated to assist the child. This all should happen as soon after birth as possible to get the best long-term results. There are other methods of treatment that may be used, but we will discuss all options when you arrive.
Our compassionate team is here to help with all of the services you need. Call us today at (425) 482-6663 to discuss your appointment for club foot deformity.
