There are many causes of the clubfoot deformity, the most cause is the congenital clubfoot children can be born with. ( its still pretty rare at one out of every 100,000 live births ) This congenital clubfoot is generally treated just after birth with a casting technique called the ponseti clubfoot casting with excellent results. In the 1980s many of these congenital clubfoot infants were treated with a surgical procedure called the Turco release, with the ponseti casting technique only a very small handful now need to have any major surgical intervention at all.
