4 1/2 year old feet turn in.

My 4 1/2 year olds feet turn in. Left is worse then right and both Dr. and a spesensoredt have said it would get better as she got to be 4 to 5 years old. But it really hasn't or if so, it's not much better.

It is noticeable and she will sometime trip over her left foot when not paying attention.

They have found nothing wrong with the structure of her legs, but we are concerned that the muscles will continue to develop turned in.

When she stands, the feet are just fine, but it's only when she walks or runs.

Do you have any suggestions on where to go from here or exercises that could be done? We are going to talk to a chiropractor and also a physical therapist.
Any suggestions would be appreciated.
Thanks in advance.
