In-Toe Walking

In toeing or pigeon toe walking (the feet point inwards instead of pointing straight ahead when walking or running) If your child appears to be waking in-toed it can be attributed to a number of causes such as stemming from the hip, thigh or lower leg and feet. This condition can be functional such as muscles, tendons, ligaments or it can be structural such as bone alignment. Like a lot of leg conditions children who walk in-toed may correct however it is important that as parents you have this assessed and if needed treated to prevent injuries and more serious conditions in their future such as lower back, hip, knee and ankle issues.
