What is the treatment for Intoeing?
The treatment of Intoeing depends on the cause.
- Internal Tibial Torsion: If the cause of Intoeingis internal tibial torsion there usually isn’t any treatment that the doctors recommend as it doesn’t cause any complications. However, when appearance becomes a problem, it may be treated with surgery where the bone is cut and roasted outward so that the feet point straight.

In most kids, the feet point straight forwards as they turn 6 or 8. If it doesn’t change or if the child is facing discomfort, corrective surgery may be performed if the doctor thinks it is a good option.
- Metatarsus Adductus: When the Intoeingis the result of metatarsus adductus, simple stretching may help set the right position of the foot.
