Symptoms of Clubfoot

The foot of the child with clubfoot is twisted inward with the toes pointing down.

Some of the common features of clubfoot include-

► The heel is pointed away from the body and is drawn upwards.

► The foot is twisted in towards the other foot.

► The toes are pointed down.

► Tightening of the Achilles tendon (the tendon that connects the calf muscle to the bone) is present.

► The affected foot and leg will be stiff and smaller in size, when compared to a normal child.

► The calf muscle may be smaller than normal and underdeveloped.

► Lack of ankle joint motion may be present.

► The affected foot may have a higher-than-normal arch.
