Intoeing occurs when a child’s feet turn inward instead of pointing straight ahead when they walk or run. It is commonly referred to as being “pigeon-toed”. Occasionally, severe intoeing may cause young children to stumble or trip as they catch their toes on their opposite heel.

Three common conditions that cause intoeing are:

  • Curved foot
  • Twisted shin
  • Twisted thighbone

Treatment depends on the cause and severity of a child’s intoeing. A biomechanical assessment with one of our Podiatrists is recommended in order to determine the best treatment plan. Call the clinic today for your child’s appointment.
