What can be done at home to treat talipes?

In mild cases of talipes, in which only the soft tissues are affected (sometimes called positional talipes), parents and carers may be recommended to perform gentle exercises and massage to help the baby's foot assume a more normal position. Congenital talipes, in which the foot is stiff and the bones are affected, cannot be treated in this way.
