Foot turning in
Nate’s whole foot turns in from the ankle. His whole foot also turns under and the front of his foot including toes, drops down and his heel is up.
It’s probably something that should be looked at. You don’t want to have it trip you when you least expect it.

This is my whole foot, I never walked with my foot inward, and now, it is turning in to the point of having to be careful, as to not step on my own foot. It is painful when I notice it and try to straighten it out.
I haven’t talked to my doctor about it yet, but, it has been bothering me now for about a year, this is the same foot I have drop foot with when I am tired from walking.
Foot Turning in
Nate had that happen early in his paralysis. His foot turned under really far.
It’s call Equinovarus Deformity. It used to be called Clubfoot.
Nate’s was not addressed while he was in the hospital except to put a fur lined boot on him at night, which did nothing.
When I got him out after 9 1/2 mos, he was walking with a walker by then.
His foot only got worse with every step. It rolled quite badly no matter what type of elastic brace we tried.
His foot not only turned under but toed in and his toes dropped making it very hard to get his heel down.
I took Nate to an Orthopedic and he was very upset that it had gotten so bad.
He says its typical of Convalescent Hospitals not to bother with that type of thing.
He sent us to have an AFO made. Otherwise it would require surgery and he will not put Nate under anesthesia.
Nate was finally casted last friday for the AFO to be built. Insurance took 2 mos just to approve it.
His PT says it will really help him a lot, and I think so too.
You should have your foot looked at to see if you might need an AFO to stop any further movement.
