Clubfoot kiddos can always benefit from physiotherapy and exercises in order to:
– built foot and ankle strength
– keep a good range of motion at the ankle
– develop gross motor skills and coordination
– improve balance
– strengthen big muscles in the hips and leg to prevent poor alignment progression
A toy catapult is a great play-based excerise to strengthen and practice balance.
Animal Catapult: This is one of our favourite excercises! Having a game where you can stomp is a great way to cue momentary single leg balancing. Too easy? Try hovering your foot over the catapult for a desired amount of the time. You can try this same game but with a stomp rocketship!
