DD is a bit pigeon toed and I think her turned-in foot could be hurting her?

My DD (almost two) has a bit of a pigeon toe. Lately she's been limping on that foot, but its not all the time and I don't think it's causing her a lot of pain or anything. Just a bit worried, and I will do what I can to correct the foot or make it more comfortable for her. Are there any physiotherapists out there who can advise if there's anything I can do? Would taking her to a physio actually achieve anything?

Do you think it would be worth taking her to the GP?

I don't think it would warrant a special trip Jilted. Was hoping I might get some free advice on here, tbh!

I would in and see your health visitor. They can refer you on. We took dd when she was 2 as she had very turned in feet and tripped over herself all the time. We were given some exercises to do and over the years she has improved.

Are you in the uk kiwi? Just asking as seeing the doctor here is just as free as MN smile

No I'm in New Zealand (we used to have free gp visits for kids but not anymore. Not at my local clinic anyway).
