Stretches for metatarsus adductus:
Try to stretch your child’s feet a few times per day. Nappy change time is a good opportunity and after a bath is also a good time as kids are usually fairly relaxed after a bath.
There are three stretches to do:
1. Stretch out the inside of the foot (most important stretch) (most important stretch)
2. Stretch the foot length-ways by pulling on all the toes
3. Twist the forefoot on the midfoot, big toe down, little toe up.
In all cases it is important to hold the hindfoot firmly and to stretch the forefoot on the midfoot, not stretching around the heel or ankle at all.
Remember that the bebax boot will hold the foot in an over-corrected position, preventing the foot from tightening up again overnight, but treatment relies on the small muscles and ligaments being stretched by you.[pic]
