Have No Fear – Clubfoot CAN Be Corrected!

Whether you are a new parent, or a rookie in the child area, you always want to make sure your child’s foot health is a priority. Some conditions, like clubfoot, are present at birth and need to be taken care of promptly.
The condition sounds like a golfing term, but its name fits because of the way the foot is shaped at birth. When a child has clubfoot, the foot is at an angle and points toward the ankle. You may also see that the foot and calf muscle are smaller. It can happen to one or both of the feet.

Clubfoot is a common congenital disorder, but its causes are not fully understood. However, it is seen in children with congenital defects, such as spinal bifida. Many studies also suggest that clubfoot can be passed through genetics.

Dr. Marco Vargas, of Foot & Ankle Associates, has experience in dealing with children’s foot conditions. If your child has clubfoot, Dr. Vargas will examine the feet and perform the proper tests to determine the severity of the condition.

There are options for treatment such as stretching and casting, stretching and taping, or surgery. Since a baby’s foot is flexible, it’s important to begin treatment early. Treatment before your child starts to walk is ideal because other issues can develop.

For more information about clubfoot, or to schedule an appointment, call our Sugar Land office at (281) 313-0090. Making an appointment with Dr. Vargas is the first step in long term foot health for your child.
