Treating clubfoot

A clubfoot is a birth defect that's characterised by a foot that is turned abnormally to the side. The affected limb is also smaller and shorter than the healthy leg. Mentioned below are the possible ways to treat clubfoot:
  • By stretching the foot toward the correct position and wearing a cast that is changed frequently (the Ponseti method).

  • By wearing a brace at night (usually after the Ponseti method).

  • By having surgery to correct the affected joints, ligaments and tendons.

  • By wearing special shoes and a brace after surgery to prevent the clubfoot from re-forming.
