welcome to hcm
are there any other associated problems mental or physical?
if not consult an ortho surgeon
he will manipulate the foot and put it in a plaster cast
the physiotherapist will show u some stretching exercises
and ways to keep the foot in correct position.
perform them as advised by the physio
after removal of the cast he might be prescribed a splint
death only due to a deformity is rare unless associated with some other disorder
