In toe/Out toe Treatment in Adelaide
In toe/Out toe gait refers to the way a child walks, with their feet pointing either outward or inward when they take a step.
In toe/Out toe is more common in children and is usually not a problem, but in-toeing can be a sign of underlying issues with the feet or legs. If left untreated, in-toeing can lead to other foot and leg problems like toe walking in children.
Symptoms Associated with In toe/Out toe:
Symptoms of In toe/Out toe gait may include pain and discomfort in the feet and ankles, especially after prolonged standing or walking. Children with these gait abnormalities may also have difficulty participating in physical activities and may experience fatigue and difficulty with balance in the In toe/Out toe.
