Clubfoot

Clubfoot

A congenital condition in which a baby's foot is twisted out of shape.

The tendons on the inside and the back of the foot are too short. The foot is pulled such that the toes point down and in, and it is held in this position by the shortened tendons.

Clubfoot will delay a child's development when they learn to walk, so treating clubfoot soon after birth is recommended.
