Clubfoot is a condition in which the forefoot (part of the foot connected to the lower leg bone) is abnormally twisted relative to the lower leg bone to point inward and downward. This may happen with one or both feet. Medically, the condition is called ‘Congenital Talipes Equino Varus’.
There are two types of Clubfoot:
- Postural Clubfoot, which involves muscle imbalance and/or tightness, but there is usually no bone or joint involvement
- Structural Clubfoot, which involves the bone and joints of the foot, where the child's foot cannot go through the full range of movements
