In brief: Not if treated

This is a condition that needs early, agressive treatment, often including surgery.

In brief: Not if it is treated

Clubfoot will respond well to treatment depending on the severity of the deformity and the treatment.
Serial casting, surgery and braces, work well for treating clubfoot.
