Anything you can tell me about femoral anteversion?

Answered by:
Dr. Tariq Niazi
Orthopedic Surgery

Persistent Femoral -


Anteversion (PFA) is due to continuation of the position the baby was in the uterus throughout the pregnancy, ie, all curled up, with the hips flexed and internally rotated. After birth, in most kids the legs rotate externally. In some kids with the PFA, they don't and start standing or walking with feet turned-in (Toeing-in), hence tripping over their own feet. Externally rotating hips Helps.

I have a femoral anteversion and minorly clubbed feet. could that be the reason why I walk pigeon-toed?

Yes


Most people who are "pigeon toed" (internally rotated) , comes from the position/structure of the hip.Some are due to tibial torsion . Rarely it is a problem unless you are tripping over your feet.

YES


Influence from the internal rotation at the hip, turns the leg. Combined with a "club foot", it can result in the pigeon-toe (in-toe) of your foot. If you are having discomfort, I recommend that you be evaluated and have a proper biomechanical/gait examination. See a podiatrist. If additional specialists are needed for referral, a good gait exam by the podiatrist can start the process.

Can correct itself


If your child has mild to moderate femoral anteversion and no other torsions then we often watch it. FA can correct up to age 12. But to be sure, check with your Pediatric orthopedist for a definitive plan

Any and all


Once you've been released to activity by your surgeon, probably one to three weeks, based on technique , you'll have no restrictions. You'll be able to do any sport or activity, tempering your enthusiasm by your level of residual soreness. The purpose of hernia repair is to return you to full and unrestricted activity. Good luck.

I have patella femoral syndrome. Can I use a mini stationary bike to do my exercises?

Great idea


Hi, thanks for the question. A stationary bike is a great idea for you. Low impact exercises are good. Also avoid deep knee flexion and stairs (especially going down). Depending on the exact diagnosis, quad strengthening, usually focusing on the vastus medialis will help. Ample stretching is also a good idea. Best regards and good luck...Adrianna, let me know how you do!

First, get cleared


Make sure your orthopaedist is okay with you doing exercises. If you are cleared, work mostly on your hip abductors. They are most important and likely to be weak. Your other hip/knee musculature should also be worked on as well. Have your orthopaedist recommend someone to help you, such as a physical therapist.
