Foot and Ankle Problems in Children
Congenitally Crooked Feet
Clubfoot syndrome is a problem that occurs in 1 out of every 1000 births. The fact that the feet are smaller and shorter than normal is usually caused by the posture position in the mother’s womb. In the treatment of clubfoot syndrome, it is aimed that the foot is on the ground without pain and that it performs all its functions.
Flatfoot in Children
Flat feet are seen in 90% of children aged 2 and under, and in 4% of children aged 10 years. Children with suspected flat feet should be examined by an orthopedic and traumatology specialist, and conditions such as short Achilles Tendon, spasticity and bridge formation between bones should be examined.
