Overview *

Clubfoot is a common birth defect that occurs when one or both feet are twisted inward and pointing downwards. Left untreated, clubfoot can lead to an inability to walk, infection and chronic pain. The Ponseti method is the most common treatment. The affected feet are gently stretched and then a long leg cast is applied. This process is repeated 5 to 8 times. After this period, a brace is usually worn for about 3 months. With early treatment and consistent use of a brace at naptime and at night for a few years after the stretching and casting, most cases of clubfoot can be corrected so that the foot is functionally normal.
