Clubfoot is a medical condition that makes a newborn’s foot rotate internally at the ankle. The affected foot points downwards and inwards, making the child’s feet face one another.
About half of children born with this condition have their feet affected. Children with this disease can have walking difficulties, so doctors recommend getting immediate treatment after birth.
Not everyone receives the full treatment they need, and they might continue to suffer complications and effects throughout their lives. If this is true for you, consider seeking disability benefits.

Long-Term Disability Claims Involving Clubfoot

Clubfoot is a condition adults suffering from it have had for a long time, and on its own typically does not cause one to become unable to perform a job previously able to do. But as other illnesses progress, the comorbidity of Clubfoot can become more limiting. It will increase the rate at which symptoms of other co-morbidities become disabling. For instance, individuals with Clubfoot who develop various forms of arthritis in the lower extremities, or nerve damage in their lower extremities, may have a greater degree of impairment caused by the additional Clubfoot condition. If you develop back disorders or Lumbar Radiculopathy, the co-morbid Clubfoot diagnosis can also exacerbate the other symptoms.

Clubfoot is a rare condition, and its mildness or severity varies among affected people. Unfortunately, medical science doesn’t know the exact cause of clubfoot. Instead, doctors believe that hereditary factors significantly contribute to it. This theory presupposes that certain gene mutations cause it, although they don’t understand how. Other possible causes include one’s gender, as baby boys are twice vulnerable as girls. One’s environment and insufficient amniotic fluid during pregnancy are other suspected causes.

The condition might manifest different clinical signs. The foot’s top usually twists downward and inward, creating an increased arch that turns the heel inward. At times, affected feet might appear inverted or be a bit shorter, and the calf muscles remain underdeveloped. Fortunately, this disorder doesn’t usually cause pain to the affected person or make them uncomfortable, but they can still develop debilitating complications. A person with this disorder is more vulnerable to arthritis and movement limitations that might make it difficult to perform certain jobs as an adult.
