Certain stages of pediatric development cause normal degrees of intoe and out toe which your child will most likely grow out of.
Sometimes certain deformities your child may be born with may be pathologic. These deformities can be inherited, congenital or caused during the birthing process.
Club foot/ equinivarus deformity
Congenital hallux valgus (bunion)
Webbed toes / extra toes
Intoe/ out toe
Flat feet (pes planus)
Cavus foot (High arch foot)
Severs disease (heel pain)
Wear supportive proper width shoes/sneakers.
Avoid having your child walk barefoot or wearing any shoe or slipper that is flat and unsupportive.
Pain or tenderness that does not subside with rest, ice, compression or elevation
Abnormal appearance of toes or feet
Frequent falling or inability to run
Frequent episodes of pain during certain activities
Dr. Amin and Dr. Hurwitz always start by listening to your concerns and performing a thorough physical examination
X-rays and ultrasound are often utilized to evaluate for deformity
Gait exam (Evaluate the way your child walks)
Treatment will vary based on the type of injury and the severity of your condition. Treatment options may include:
Sometimes reassurance of your child’s condition is all that is required and monitoring for any changes before considering intervention.
Padding and strapping
If conservative therapy fails to allow you to walk without pain, surgical intervention may be an option.
