Pigeon Toes

What Are Pigeon Toes

Pigeon toes, intoeing (metatarsus adductus) or clubfoot (talipes equinovarus) are the names given to the range of foot conditions where the front half of the foot is deformed, either bending inwards or downwards.

Causes of Pigeon Toes

They are common problems in young children although many children will outgrow the deformity.

If the foot is too severely deformed it can cause problems with balance, stumbling and discomfort when walking — your child may also feel embarrassed by his or her clumsiness.

If Left Untreated

If left untreated, pigeon toes or clubfoot can also cause pain and difficulties in other areas of the body, such as the knees, hips or lower back.

The deformed shape of the foot may also make it difficult to find well-fitting footwear.
