When you visit our clubfoot specialists at Mill Creek Foot and Ankle Clinic for a consultation, you will be able to learn all about your options for clubfoot treatment and surgery in Monroe. Our team of professionals have plenty of experience while working with families who have children that were born with club foot. To get the process started for proper treatment, all you have to do is set up a time for an initial consultation so that we can evaluate the severity of your child’s clubfoot condition.
We will be able to work with you on stretches and manual manipulation of your baby’s feet to start the movement process. Casting may also be done that will start to get the bones shifting into the proper position. By working with your baby at regular intervals, we will be able to stretch and recast easily, offering a gentle stretch to the foot. Overall, this is a process that is not painful for your baby and it should only take between six to eight weeks until optimal results are achieved.
Once we are able to get the foot, or feet, into the right position, your baby will have to wear a regular brace for a few months. The brace will help to solidify the positioning of the bones to make sure that there is a great frame to work with once the child starts to walk.
As with any sort of treatment for your child, you will see that your participation and understanding will be very important. If you have any questions or concerns, you can always count on our staff to help.
