The Foot Of My Child When Walking Is Left Inward?
My child is 4 years and a half … every time my left foot goes into the right part of his fingers … Why?
Walking requires various processes related to muscle, joint, nerve, and bone function. A good walking process is certainly marked by the position of your feet and fingers straight forward, not bent inward or outward. The improper position of the foot or toe when walking may be caused by incorrect walking habits. In addition, it may also be caused by problems with bone shape, muscle work, nerve function, or joint conditions. For example there is one or several bones that are not well shaped, it will affect the mechanism of action of the muscles. Impaired muscle function and innervation can also lead to an incorrect walking position.
You should bring your child to consult with a pediatrician. The doctor will do a physical examination and if necessary, the doctor may have to refer to other specialists. Investigations may also be needed, for example CT-scan or MRI, to look for bone and muscle abnormalities. Therapy and actions can later be adjusted to the diagnosis found.
Hopefully this brief explanation can help you. Regards.
