    Default Toddler with different length femurs?

    Hi guys...I haven't posted on bubhub for so long but I have a question Our DD who is 16 months has just started walking and walk with a limp. We took her to the chiropractor last night and her pelvis was out of alignment so that is somethign we can continue to do to help......BUT her femurs are different lengths....her leg creases are very different to each other and one leg in noticeably smaller (now we are looking, we didn't notice before.) It is possible it was caused by a lumbar puncture she had to have when she was 2 weeks old We are going to stick with chiropractic care at the moment and maybe find an osteopath....not really interested in going down the medical route. Has anyone else had experience with this? The chiro said they could even up at her 2 year growth spurt...?

    Thanks

    In my brothers case, they didn't even up & we highly doubt they will.

    Personally, I'd be getting an option from a physio.

    How old is your brother and does he walk with a limp?

    A friends brother had this problem. It didn't correct itself, so he ended up having to have it broken and put in a halo brace until it lengthened to match the other one. This happened when he was 18 and it had been determined that he had finished growing.

    It didn't really worry him though. He only got it fixed for cosmetic reasons.
