Paediatric physiotherapists treating baby feet deformities in London
Baby feet deformities include Metatarsus adductus, baby club foot, pigeon toe, positional talipes and are a common foot condition for babies, normally seen in up to 2% of infants. The condition begins within the uterus ; as the baby grows his feet may assume a comfortable position, causing muscle retraction in one of the feet. If your baby’s feet are unusually pointed inwards or outwards, or your infant walks on his toes and you find it difficult to straighten them, or the soles of the feet look slightly bean shaped, your baby will need physiotherapy treatment.

More information about Baby Feet Deformities or Clubfoot ? and why exercises are important
Clubfoot is actually a common name for a whole range of foot deformities in children. It is a congenital foot condition that is usually due to irregular positioning of your babies feet in the uterus ; as the pregnancy advances, the feet assume the most comfortable position. As the vital space decreases this results in difficulty to move them in the opposite direction. This abnormality persists after delivery, because one of the muscles is retracted and the opposing muscle is stretched.
Around 1 in 3 babies in each 1000 can be born with clubfoot, and it is much more common in boys than girls. Although the condition will not cause your baby any pain, it can cause them problems later on in life, and affect their ability to walk. This is why it is important to treat the condition early with physiotherapy.
More severe baby feet deformities – talipes equinovarus
Certain deformities such as talipes equinovarus, which can also be called club foot, are more difficult to correct as they are non-flexible and often correlate with neurological problems. This rehabilitation will involve a close cooperation between the paediatric physiotherapist and your baby’s doctor which may involve a cast and surgery, however these deformities are rare.
