Understanding Intoe Gait:

Intoe Gait, also known as “pigeon – toed” or ” in-Toeing”  is a common walking pattern observed in children. It is characterized by a child&’s feet pointing inward while walking or running. This condition can be a source of concern for parents, but it is important tounde rstand that in many cases, in toeing is a normal part of a child’s  development and tends to resolve on its own as the child grows.

Intoe Gait can be caused by various factors:

Metatarsus Adductus: A condition where the front part of the foot turns inward
while the heel remains straight.

Femoral Anteversion: The thigh bone (femur) is rotated inwards more than usual,
causing the feet to turn inward.

Tibial Torsion: The lower leg bone (tibia) is twisted inward, leading to intoeing.
