Is intoeing normal for a child?

Intoeing is a common condition for children and is often referred to as “pigeon toes”. Typically, a child will grow out of the condition, but in the case that they do not, it is important to see a podiatrist.

As a child’s foot develops, the bones and ligaments grow in a way that allows intoeing to occur. The developing foot will eventually align itself in a way that the foot points straight. In the case that the foot does not grow properly, medical attention may be required to correct the issue.

There are three main causes of intoeing and depending on the age of the child, you can understand which is affecting your child. This condition is often passed through genetics. For this reason it is usually not possible to prevent the development of intoeing.

If you child is older than 9 or 10, surgery may be required to properly fix the issue. If you think your child has a foot problem, do not hesitate to visit one of our offices. Treating conditions during the early stages of development is always recommended.
