Derotation Straps to Improve Gait Pattern in Internally/ Externally Foot Rotation Gait Deviation

Children at various ages may display intoeing for different reasons. There are few reasons a child walks with the toes pointed toward the midline:

1. "Twisted Thigh Bone” known as Femoral Anteversion

2. “Twisted Shin Bone” known as Internal Tibial Torsion

3. “Curved Foot” known as Metatarsus Adductus

When mild, intoeing may cause parental concern simply by the appearance, but in the extreme, it may cause functional impairment such as excessive tripping and falling.
