Club Foot

What is Club Foot?

Club Foot is when the foot is either pointed downward or pointed in an unusual direction. It happens at birth and can either effect one foot or both. Almost half of the cases are involving both feet. It is usually caused by the position of the baby while in the mother's womb. It can also be caused by drinking or smoking during pregnancy. This is a structural defect.
