Club Foot Types and Treatment

Club foot is a type of birth defect that may affect one or both feet. Through a sonogram, it is easy to identify even before a child is born. The affected foot is typically bent inward at the ankle and can impair a child’s ability to walk. Club foot is one of the more common birth defects, occurring in approximately one out of every 1,000 babies born. Women who take Zoloft while pregnant may be at greater risk of giving birth to a baby with a club foot.

Types of Club Foot

Club foot birth defects are classified into different categories depending on the joint affected and the severity of the defect. The three conditions of club foot are:

  • Inversion of the foot at the subtalar joint
  • Adduction of the foot at the talonavicular joint
  • Equinus of the foot at the ankle joint

Club Foot Treatment

It is possible for club foot to be treated shortly after birth so that the child is minimally affected by the deformity. While club foot used to be treated using surgery, now there are multiple non-surgical methods available to address the defect. One popular way to reposition a club foot is to use Botox injections. The Botox temporarily weakens the Achilles tendon of the ankle, making it possible to manipulate the foot to a natural position. The weakness from the Botox wears off over a period of several weeks, with the foot repositioned so that the child is able to use the foot and walk normally.
