Parent Networks

A child’s best advocate is his or her parents, and children born with clubfoot are no exception. Parents of children with clubfoot have been instrumental in bringing recognition to the Ponseti Method. In fact, it was two imposing forces coming together that moved the Ponseti Method forward in the mid 1990’s—parents and the Internet. That strong advocacy and support continues today, with a number of helpful chat rooms and organizations available to offer support to parents around the world. We have referenced a few of those below.
