Customer Question
Hi my name is...

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?

Doctor's Assistant: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?

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.

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.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
