Club Foot


Clubfoot (also known as Talipes equinovarus, or just Talipes) refers to the congenital condition when the foot turns in an inward and downward direction, mostly found in males. It may be mild and flexible condition, to very rigid and severe, affecting both feet together, as a result of which the calf muscle and foot may appear slightly smaller than how it should do normally. The disorder is detected through a physical examination, usually by a foot x-ray. The treatment involves straightening the foot using a cast to keep it into the correct position by an orthopedician at the initial stage of the birth of the baby. Severe clubfoot cases needs surgery if treatments are not effective, or the problem persists.
