HI all...I posted something similar yesterday but thought i would try again. It has just been noticed that our 16 month old has one short leg - by about an inch...she has just started walking and has a pronounced limp I have noticed today that her foot is smaller on that side too. Does anyone have any experience with this?

Sorry I have no experience with it. Have seen a pead about it.

No, we have only just discovered it and saw a chiro first to rule out anything with her hips. I have never been to a paed and having trouble knowing where to start.

To get to see a pead go to a gp and ask for a referral. They will probably need a x ray done first. You can see a private one (normally around $200 to $300 for the first consult) or public through the hospital system. I have done both and prefer the hospital system.

I'm a podiatrist at a public health service and we see children and adults with LLD (as do the physios i work with) and sometimes I book a joint consult with a physio do we can look at it at the same time. Sometimes exercises are needed, other times heel raises in shoe or additions to shoes (and sometimes nothing, though if we measure an inch we probably would do something about it).
I'd ring your local community health service and find out if you were eligible for an appt with a pod or a physio as if you went to a paed they'd prob refer to one of them for the actual treatment anyway. Up to you though this is just my experience.
