Foot deformities are disorders that affect the feet, and can affect the bones, tendons or muscles. They occur when the foot is not formed properly, and can often cause pain or trouble walking.
Common deformities of the foot may include:
- Claw toe
- Flat feet
- Hallux Varus
- And more
Some foot deformities are present at birth, while others develop over time. Some patients with foot deformities experience pain and loss of mobility, while others do not. Still, it's important to allow a skilled orthopaedist to examine a foot deformity to determine if treatment is necessary.
