Have you noticed that your child is not walking straight? Is your child crying out in pain at night from sore legs and feet? We can help. It is not normal that a child suffers in pain.
A common condition that SOLE THERAPY treats is in toeing of the feet. Early prevention is seen as a preventable cause to long-standing complications.
In-toeing means that when a child walks or runs, the feet t urn inward instead of pointing straight ahead. It is commonly referred to as being “pigeon-toed.”
In-toeing is often first noticed by parents when a baby begins walking, but children at various ages may display in-toeing for different reasons.
Occasionally, severe in-toeing may cause young children to stumble or trip as they catch their toes on the other heel. In-toeing usually does not cause pain, nor does it lead to arthritis but should examined early by a paediatric podiatrist.
In the vast majority of children younger than 3 years old, in-toeing will almost always correct itself without the use of casts, braces, surgery, or any special treatment. Beyond 3 years of age we strongly recommend the advice from our paediatric podiatrist’s as early prevention is better than cure.
