In Toeing

What is in toeing?

In toeing or 'pigeon toed' as it is also known describes the position of a child's foot where the feet point inwards. For many children this is a perfectly normal developmental stage, and something that they will grow out of.

Podiatry can help your child by assessing the mechanics of their leg and foot fully, in order to establish the cause of your child's in toeing, and whether or not this is within normal parameters.

Children who in toe may be more susceptible to corns or callus, due to the abnormal pressures being placed onto the foot as a result of poor biomechanics. If your child has painful corns or callus our podiatrist's can remove this pain free.
