I am 35male and was never treated for club foot as a child. What should I do now? I never knew what was wrong with me until now!
I call a pedi ortho: The typical clubfoot may respond to a series of casts applied starting soon after birth to reshape the ankle & foot. The casts are removed & reapplied over days & weeks to bring the bones into better alignment. If the casts don't bring things into position surgery may be required. Often you can find this specialized service at one of the shrine hospitals.See 2 more doctor answers
No: In some cases non-surgical management can be used but this condition requires proper medical attention. See apediatric orthopaedic surgeon if infant/child, orthopaedic foot/ankle specialist if adult.See 2 more doctor answers
How to stop walking on the sides of my feet which apparently is caused by having club foot as a baby?
My husband has a cousin born with club foot. I’ve heard this is a genetic condition. Should I be worried about my baby?
No: There is a genetic component involved but this is small. If present, this can be usually detected at the 20 week ultrasound. If it is detected at this time, then is is important to rule out other malformations. If club foot is the only anomaly, an orthopedic surgeon evaluates the baby and outlines a treatment plan that involves physical therapy and perhaps surgery.See 2 more doctor answers
