walking deformities

Rotational deformities of the legs and feet in children are often a cause of concern for parents. Most people think of deformities as either toeing in or toeing out. In reality, the deformity comes from rotation of the femur and the tibia. While the deformities may be a result of a congenital defect or become more prevalent as the child grows, it is best not to wait for an expert assessment or treatment. Walking abnormalities are unusual and uncontrollable walking patterns. They are usually due to diseases or injuries to the legs, feet, brain, spinal cord, or inner ear. Fortunately, we're here to help.

flat feet

Flat feet (also called pes planus or fallen arches) is a postural deformity in which the arches of the foot collapse. The result: the sole of the foot comes into complete or near-complete contact with the ground. Some individuals have an arch that simply never develops in one foot or both feet. Unfortunately, there is a functional relationship between the arch of the foot and the biomechanics of the lower leg. Fortunately, there are a number of simple operative, minimally invasive and non-operative treatments that can cure flat feet disorders. For this reason, it is important that you reach out to experts such as Savannah Orthopaedic Foot & Ankle for proper diagnosis and treatment.
