Hello! My second sons foot turned inward and I took him to an orthopedic doctor who recommended therapy. It turned out correctly. But a surprise we found out one leg was longer than the other....just enough to cause him to turn that one foot inward.

Hi Amanda I had fallen arches as a child and walked badly and my eldest son walks badly and runs knock kneed , I thought at first he had a strange walk because of his asd problems (doh!) but recently having his feet measured the woman pointed it out and said he probably had flat feet ! I had special soles in my shoes as a teenager and now have no problems so I know his should be easily fixed its just getting him to an appointment to sort it !

hope your sons feet get sorted too

He could have falling arches. I was falling over all the time as a kid because my feet turn inward, and insoles helped a lot. I agree with the other parents who say you should take him to an orthopedist.

Yes, take him to an orthopedist. He may have a problem with muscle development in his foot, since he is falling. If that is not the problem, he may need therapy. My daughter walked pigeon-toed and was constantly falling so my husband built a low balance beam for her to walk on and she is doing better.
