Clubfoot is a condition in which the foot is turned and twisted inward. This is present at birth (and in some cases may be detected on prenatal ultrasound). It is one of the most common birth anomalies. Clubfoot is more common in males, and occurs in both feet about half the time.
Babies can have clubfeet as their only problem or clubfeet can happen with other problems that affect the baby’s nerves, muscles or tendons. Clubfeet in babies who have other problems can be stiffer and harder to treat than clubfeet that happen alone. No one knows what causes clubfeet but they tend to be passed along in families.
If treated, most kids will be able to walk, wear shoes and play sports without pain. Most treatment doesn’t require an operation.
