Intoe or Pidgeon Toed

Most Young toddlers walk with their toes and feet pointing inwards. It is part of the usual developmental pattern, and in most cases this will be grown out of around the age 3-5 years.  Should this not happen or if excessive intoeing is causing your child to frequently trip over or seems awkward or clumsy a clinical assessment should be carried out as yearly as possible to determine whether treatment is recomended.

We need to determine whether the internal rotation is originating at the hip or foot, both cases can be very successfully treated.  A physiotherapist may be suggested depending on the orientation of the problem.  An orthotic may be required to encourage the foot to straighten.
