In-toeing and out-toeing are common gait irregularity concerns for families with young children. In-toeing, or being ‘pigeon-toed’, refers to children whose feet turn inwards instead of pointing straight ahead when they walk or run. It is a condition that can cause young children to trip or move awkwardly.
In-toeing often corrects itself as children get older depending on the underlying causes. Casts, braces and surgery are largely ineffective treatment methods. However, custom orthotics have been shown to be effective in improving the child’s gait pattern and correcting the foot position.
Early intervention with Kinetic Orthotics can prevent future complications from arising from poor foot position and gait patterns. This product is highly effective in correcting pigeon toe, or the foot position and gait of children.
