more about Toeing-Out

  • Out-toeing refers to the condition where the feet point outward.  The cause is unknown, but some factors are related with out-toeing.  These include abnormal positioning in the womb, genetic history, and wearing diapers that are too wide.  Out-toeing often occurs with a genu valgum (knock-knees).

  • The following deformities can cause out-toeing:

    1. External tibial torsion -- outward twisting of tibia (shin bone)
    2. External femoral torsion -- outward twisting of the femur (thigh bone)

  • Mild out-toeing is extremely common, and is considered a rather normal condition.  Most out-toeing corrects itself with growth, so no treatment is needed.
  • If the external femoral torsion affects only one side, it is usually caused by the slipped capital femoral epiphysis (SCFE).  In this condition, further diagnostic tests and treatment are needed.
