The most common foot problem seen in children is in-toe. Often times this is the result of lack of external rotation at the hip (femur). The result is in-toe gait and a flattening of the arch.
Although many of the deformities seen in the infant are a result of retained intrauterine position, the child will grow out of these if the intrauterine position retained is significant, or a structural deformity is present these problems will not be resolved. The earlier treatment is started, the more successful resolution can be.
