Dont get confused with club feet. Clubfoot is a birth defect where one or both feet are rotated inward and downward.[1][4] The affected foot and leg may be smaller than the other.[1] In about half of those affected, both feet are involved.[1] Most cases are not associated with other problems.[1] Without treatment, people walk on the sides of their feet, which causes problems with walking.[2] The exact cause is usually unclear.[1] A few cases are associated with distal arthrogryposis or myelomeningocele.[2]
