What are foot disorders?
Also known as: foot deformities, congenital foot abnormalities, club foot, claw foot
Foot disorders refer to structural abnormalities related to the feet. These are often present at birth. Clubfoot is a medical condition in which an infant’s foot or feet are turned inward, either to the side or almost facing upward. And claw foot is a condition in which the ankle is bent upward and the toes are bent downward so that they look like a claw.
