My almost 7 month old DS has been seeing a paediatrician since birth due to some major problems he had during delivery (umbi cord around neck, shoulder dystocia, no heartbeat or respiration on delivery, and seizures in his first 24 hours of life). Remarkably he is doing really well developmentally since then and there have seemed to be no problems, although in the last 2 months the paed has picked up that my DS's left foot has slight foot drop and stiffness. He referred DS to a physio and we had our first appointment yesterday. The physio is still going to do further assessments, but she mentioned that DS could have mild talipes in the left foot - she said maybe it wasn't picked up due to all the other dramas he had at the time of his birth.
I was wondering if anyone has had any experiences with their baby/child having this condition. How and when was it detected, and how was it treated? Have there been any lasting effects or problems as they have grown older?
As I said the physio is only suggesting this at the moment as she needs to assess DS further, but I'd like to prepare myself if it is talipes. Thanks!
