"Out-toeing is less common than in-toeing in children. Children who suffer from out-toeing resemble penguins walking – feet pointing out almost as if they are in first or second dance position and with almost a waddle-like gait. Out-toeing can cause pain," says Nicole G. Freels, DPM

"It occurs in children who are born with external rotation contractures in the hips when he/she first begins walking. In other words, the muscles are either too weak or too tight. Other causes of out-toeing include the tibia or femur bone being twisted, which is typically more common in children with neuromuscular abnormalities. Usually, out-toeing becomes recognizable in children who are between 1 and 2 years of age," says Dr. Freels.
