This is a continuation of the Infant Foot Movements and Clubfoot article
In the first Infant Foot Movements article I highlighted the tendency to invert the foot with flexion of the toes in one TD infant from the age of 10 - 18 weeks.
The pattern of foot movement is different in infants in the first few weeks. Both Will and Max (born 6 weeks preterm) show distinct dorsiflexion with eversion and toe extension movements when flexing and extending the LEs.
Will 5 weeks supine and prone
Max at 3 weeks (CA -3 weeks)
Max at 6 weeks (CA 0 weeks)
