Lumpy Foot – PEVA

Klumpfoot is also called PEVA, which is an abbreviation of the Latin name pes equino varus adductus. It is a congenital malformation which means that the heel is turned inwards and the forefoot is directed downwards towards the body's midline. The heel is also high up while the foot and toes point downwards, so-called tip foot.

Inward and Outward Feet

Some children walk in or out with their feet. It is mostly due to changes in hip mobility and usually go away by itself over time. Sometimes the forefoot may be twisted so that the toes point inwards. Then stretching exercises are often enough, but sometimes the foot may need to be plastered.

Hammer Toe

If you have a hammer toe, one or more toes next to the big toe are curved. The small joints in the toe are bent so that the toe is similar to a hammer. Because it can cause the shoe to rub against the top of the toe, a sore hardening is often formed there, a so-called corn.

Foot Problems in Children

It can be anything from flat feet that do not need treatment, to deformities that require multiple surgeries and plaster adjustments. Pain in the heel is common and usually transient.

Trigger Finger in Children

Trigger finger, also called spring finger, is most common in older people but also occurs in infants. It usually turns out that the child can not stretch on the thumb. Occasionally the thumb will lock. This is because the bend tendon to the outer end of the thumb has thickened and hooks itself into the tendon.

Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

The carpal tunnel is a channel that exists between several legs and a strong ligament in the palm of the hand. Through the canal, an important nerve, the median nerve, and tendons pass to the muscles of the fingers. Carpal tunnel syndrome is caused by nerve constriction when the space has decreased.
