|An ankle or foot deformity that occurs in several different forms affecting 1 in 400 babies. In the most common form the foot is angled at the heel and points upward and outward. If both feet are ’’clubbed’’ the child`s toes point towards each other. Clubfoot is not painful, but will bother the baby once they begin to stand or walk. Treatment includes surgical and non-surgical interventions. Most commonly the child`s foot is splinted repetitively into a more neutral position so the foot will eventually be able to move normally.|
