Treatment should be started in the first week or two of life in order to take advantage of the favorable elasticity of the tissues forming the ligaments, joint capsules and tendons. With our treatment for clubfoot these structures are stretched with weekly, gentle manipulations. A plaster cast is applied after each weekly stretching session to retain the degree of correction obtained and to help soften the ligaments. Thereby, the displaced bones are gradually brought into the correct alignment.
