How long does it take to correct clubfoot?

Clubfoot refers to a foot abnormality present at birth in which the feet are twisted inward and out of position. This condition can range from mild to severe, thus the time it takes to correct it can vary accordingly. In most cases, weekly manipulation, along with casting or taping and splinting, will take approximately two months, but special shoes and braces will need to be worn for up to three years. This is also true for cases in which a surgical procedure is necessary for correction. No matter the treatment method, correcting clubfoot takes time, patience, and diligence, but with the help of Rocky Mountain Foot & Ankle Center, your baby can grow up to wear normal shoes and participate in activities any child may choose.
