Anyone knows if there has ever been any medical research done into Talipes Equinovarus and how it affects sufferers in later life. The benefits people don't seem to understand what I'm going through with the onset of arthritis. I was born in 1959 and know that people born later with TE aren't usually put through as much surgery as I went through and therefore, maybe, don't have the same problems later in life. They seem to think that my "condition" will improve. This is sadly, not true but I don't know how to convey this.
