Common Children’s Foot Problems
Intoeing, Out-Toeing, and Toe Walking
Parents may notice their child’s feet turn inward (“pigeon-toed”) or outward while walking, or that they walk primarily on their toes. This may be accompanied by tripping.
In many cases, these conditions are of little concern. A child will often grow out of them normally as their muscles and coordination further develop. However, these symptoms can also be signs of nerve or muscle conditions and should be monitored.
