GAIT DEVIATIONS (in Children)
In the initial childhood (around the age of 2-3), there can be some prominent gait deviation in children. Mild gait abnormalities are common and self-correct, while medical intervention can be necessary for severe gait deviation or if conditions do not self-improve. Gait Deviation includes in-toeing (pigeon toes), knock-knee (genu valgum) and toe walking (tip toe walking).
Our certified Orthotists possess the knowledge of normal gait and developmental milestones, are trained in children’s gait assessment and will prescribe orthoses that is necessary to treat the identified condition.
