There are three types of clubfoot that your child can be diagnosed with:
A true (idiopathic) clubfoot accounts for the vast majority of cases. This type is stiff or rigid, and very hard to manipulate.
The affected foot may be more flexible, with a condition known as positional clubfoot. This flexible type of club foot is caused by the baby's prenatal position in the uterus (often breech). Positional clubfoot can easily be positioned into a neutral (not curved) position by hand.
A third type is syndrome clubfoot—in which the condition is part of a larger syndrome. This type is usually more severe and difficult to treat, with less positive outcomes.
