What is in toeing?

Intoeing

  • Assessment of rotational profile. In-toeing can be caused by in-turning at the level of the hips, tibias or feet.
  • Femoral anteversion. Frequently, femoral anteversion reduces from approximately 40° at birth to approximately 20° by the age of nine years.
  • Internal tibial torsion.
  • Metatarsus adductus.
  • Referral recommendations
  • Differential diagnosis.
  • Summary.

Which is the best treatment for in toeing? However, none of these shoes or braces have been shown to speed up the natural resolution of tibial torsion. Therefore, simple reassurance and observation is the best treatment for in-toeing caused by internal tibial torsion. Studies have shown that adult runners who have a slightly in-toed gait are faster on average than those who do not.

Are there any special shoes for in-toeing? Many different braces and special shoes have been prescribed in the past for internal tibial torsion. However, none of these shoes or braces have been shown to speed up the natural resolution of tibial torsion. Therefore, simple reassurance and observation is the best treatment for in-toeing caused by internal tibial torsion.

What does it mean to have pigeon toes? Pigeon Toes (Intoeing) Children who walk with their feet turned in are described as being “pigeon-toed” or having “intoeing.” This is a very common condition that may involve one or both feet, and it occurs for a variety of reasons.

What causes in-toeing in hips and feet? In-toeing can be caused by in-turning at the level of the hips, tibias or feet. Examination of the rotational profile is described on the Rotational profile page or in the separate rotational profile leaflet (available to download from the Rotational profile page).

What are the different types of in toeing? There are three types of in-toeing: Tibial Torsion, Metatarsus Addactus, and Femoral Anteversion. When the shinbone (tibia bone) is tilting inward causing the feet to point in.

Is there a cure for intoeing and outtoeing? Treatment is rarely indicated for intoeing and outtoeing. Historically, “corrective shoes” and braces were recommended for these conditions. Natural history studies have confirmed that intoeing and outtoeing spontaneously improve in the vast majority of typically developing children.

When to see a physical therapist for in toeing? Physical therapy can help provide awareness of correct foot positioning when walking. Physical therapy may be recommended if the issue does not resolve on its own in a reasonable amount of time. If you feel like your child would benefit from a physical evaluation for in-toeing or out-toeing, contact Lumiere Children’s Therapy.
