Club foot and Congenital Deformity
Congenital deformities of the lower limbs are developmental disorders that are present at birth, causing alterations in the shape and appearance of the legs. Several factors such as genetics, teratogenic drugs and chemicals can cause congenital deformities.
Congenital clubfoot is a common pediatric foot deformity.
The initial treatment for clubfoot involves non-surgical methods, preferably begun in the first week of life.
