Club Foot

more about Club Foot

Talipes equinovarus

  • The clubfoot is a congenital deformity characterized by the inward turning of the foot.

  • Clubfoot is present at birth and is easily recognized by doctors or parents.  It is a fixed deformity that cannot be passively correctable.  Clubfoot itself does not cause pain.  It is usually bilateral and more common in boys than in girls.

  • Manipulation of the foot -- stretching the clubfoot and the application of the casting.  Doctors will change the casting at weekly intervals with gradual stretching of the contracted tissues (serial casting).  6 to 8 weeks may be required for serial casting.  Manipulation should be started immediately after birth.
  • Surgery -- if the serial casting is not successful, surgery is needed to correct the deformity.
