Customer Question

Hi my name is ***** *****, I have 4 children. My youngest is 13 months old. I've noticed she has slightly lower muscle tone in her left foot. The muscles on the left toes are weaker and more flexible. Her foot "feels" slightly smaller, less toned than her other foot. Has different skin creases on lower legs. Uses both hands equally. walking with seemingly normal new walker gait. Just curious about the differences in her feet.... maybe something to watch or worth investigating further?
JA: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?
Customer: We had initial concerns about clubfeet... shes seems to have outgrown that. She had a slight shoulder dystocia... very brief, vaginal unmediated birth. Healthy, seems to be developing normally.
JA: OK got it. Last thing — Pediatricians generally expect a deposit of about $18 to help with your type of question (you only pay if satisfied). Now I'm going to take you to a page to place a secure deposit with JustAnswer. Don't worry, this chat is saved. After that, we will finish helping you.

Hello, please get her assessed by ped neurologist. She could be having developmental defect in spinal cord or such. Meanwhile see a physiotherapist for muscle strengthning.

One possibility is some amniotic band constricting growth of one limb, while in uterus.
