Pigeon Toes Toeing


CONDITIONS

Pigeon Toes (In-Toeing)

Pigeon toes are a common foot (or leg) abnormality in which the toes point inward rather than straight forward when a person runs or walks. The condition may be apparent from the time of birth in an abnormality called metatarsus adductus as a result of the child's positioning in the womb. In severe cases, early casting or splinting may be advised to ensure proper foot development. Sometimes the condition develops in a child who is just learning to walk or as the child enters pre-puberty. Here, the issue is due to the shinbone or thighbone turning inward, and is something that is often seen in members of the same family. In kids under the age of eight, “in-toeing” rarely requires medical treatment as it typically resolves itself over time, but in kids over that age, falling hazards and other issues may lead to surgery being considered.
