Some children’s feet turn in when they walk. This is called in-toeing or ‘pigeon toe’ and is very common in young children. It is one of the most normal foot positions in children.
If your child has a problem which does not improve as you would expect with self-care, you should contact a healthcare professional for advice. This may be your GP, Pharmacist, NHS Podiatry Service or a Private Podiatrist.
Please make sure your podiatrist is registered with the Health and Care Professions Council and look out for the letters HCPC after their name.
