Talipes

Otherwise known as ‘club foot‘, some infants – twice as many boys as girls – are born with the sole of one or both feet facing down and inwards, or up and outwards. The cause of club foot is not fully understood, but it can be inherited. The foot will be manipulated over several months, and braced or splinted in position between manipulations. It surgery is necessary, it can be carried out up to the age of 9 months.
