Club Foot

Correcting Clubfoot: Treatment and Support for All Ages at Medace Clinic

Clubfoot, a birth defect affecting the foot and ankle, causes the foot to turn inward and downward. While typically diagnosed at birth, clubfoot can also be identified in older children and adults. At Medace Clinic, we understand the importance of early intervention and offer comprehensive treatment plans for all ages, helping patients achieve improved foot function and mobility.

Treatments

Understanding Clubfoot:

Clubfoot occurs due to tightened muscles and ligaments in the foot and ankle. This deformity can affect one or both feet, causing various limitations:

  • Difficulty walking: The inward-turned position makes walking and standing challenging.
  • Pain and discomfort: Tight muscles and abnormal positioning can cause pain and discomfort.
  • Limited shoe options: Finding well-fitting shoes can be difficult.
  • Impact on self-esteem: Clubfoot can affect a child’s self-esteem and participation in activities.

 

Treatment Options at Medace Clinic:

The most successful approach to clubfoot treatment involves early intervention. Here’s how we address clubfoot at different stages:

For Newborns (Ponseti Method):

  • The Ponseti Method: This non-surgical approach is the gold standard for treating clubfoot in infants. It involves a series of gentle manipulations and castings to gradually reposition the foot over several weeks.
  • Bracing: Once the foot is in a corrected position, a special brace is used to maintain alignment and prevent relapse.

 

For Older Children and Adults:

  • Manipulation and casting: In some cases, manipulation and casting may be attempted, especially if the deformity is mild.
  • Surgery: If non-surgical methods are not successful, minimally invasive surgery may be recommended to release tight muscles and ligaments.
  • Physical therapy: Physical therapy plays a crucial role in all stages of treatment, helping to improve flexibility, strengthen muscles, and restore proper gait.

I had visited Medace Clinic in Kothanur for my Tennis Elbow issue in my right hand. I was recommended for Physiotherapy treatment. I underwent this treatment for 4 days in the clinic (daily visit for treatment) and was given few exercises to be done at home post that. I got a huge relief from this treatment. The Physiotherapist was very good. She had a good knowledge and was able to get to the exact pain and provided the treatment. My pain has reduced drastically and I am able to do the daily activities without any pain now. Will be joining back to gym as well in 4 to 5 days.

We consulted Dr. Geetika throughout my wife’s pregnancy. Without question, she is a gem of a person, soft spoken and very down to earth. The best thing about her is that you can message her with the slightest doubt on WhatsApp and she is available to respond. She will take the time to listen to you and provide you with the most effective advice to address your current situation and prevent future issues. She is very very easy to talk to. Never prescribed us any unnecessary tests or medicines. She guided us in detail at every step week after week, month after month. We are so happy and proud for having done this journey with her.

Dr. Noel Kumar at Medace Clinic is an exceptional doctor who truly cares about his patients. He has been treating my todler son for the past three months, he has recovered from his femur fracture completely and I have seen a remarkable improvement in his condition. His expertise in the field is very evident in the way he diagnosed, operated and provided post operative care. Dr. Noel takes the time to explain everything in detail and answer any questions we have. He is always available to address our concerns and provide us with the best possible care. The clinic is well-equipped and staffed by friendly professionals who go above and beyond to make us feel comfortable. I would highly recommend Dr. Noel and Medace Clinic to anyone looking for quality orthopedic care.
