Out Toeing Treatment Bankstown NSW
What Is Out Toeing?
This is the exact opposite of in toed or pigeon toed conditions. It is referred to when walking with the foot pointing outwards (duck walk) most likely due to an external or outward rotation of the tibia causing the foot to point outwards.
Signs & Symptoms of Out Toeing
Signs and symptoms include muscular aches and pains, leg pains, knee pains, groin pains/tightness, excess pronation of the feet and typical ‘duck walk’ gait.
Out Toeing Treatment
Treatment includes the use of orthotic therapy with in toe gait plates to rectify the outward rotation of the tibia.
Frequently Asked Questions
Is Out Toeing Normal?: While out toeing is normal in young children and usually straightens itself out as the child develops, it is less common than in toeing. If your child complains of pain or you notice a limp, you should book an appointment with a Bankstown podiatrist for assessment and treatment options. If you are an adult and your feet are out toed or you have a "duck walk", this is not normal and you should pop in for a visit at Bankstown Podiatry for assessment and treatment.
