Hello.welcome.Although surgery can only correct the deformity,you can use a dorsiflexion foot splint which can make her walk with ease.good luck.

Hi well come to HCM.
Now a days surgerys are performed for correction of this kind of deformities, because
chances of getting much benefit out physio does not look very bright because defrmity
is very old. You should contact good orthopedic surgeon who will guide you about kind
of surgery possible on her and likely out come of surgery. Thanks
