Intoeing or outoueing are a common concerns of gait irregularities for families with young children. Intoeing, or being ‘pigeon-toed’, refers to children whose feet turn inwards instead of pointing ahead when they walk or run. It is a condition that can cause young children to trip or move awkwardly.
Intoeing 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 the foot position and gait of children.
