I posted a couple of months ago about my daughter getting AFOs. She got these at the recommendation of her PT and never saw an orthopedic doctor. Last week while the PT was at our house, dd was walking a lot with her push toy while wearing her AFOs. The PT noticed that her right foot is still turning out and that her whole lower body seemed to be facing right a bit. Now she's thinking that it might be something with her hip(s). Her developmental therapist saw her earlier this week and agreed, recommending that I take her to an orthopedic doctor. So, I've made an appointment to see an orthopedic doctor on Monday and I wish I would have done that in the first place before getting the AFOs. Nothing I can do about that now, though. I have no idea what to expect. I know at least one, if not two of her therapists have mentioned to me that PTs and orthopedic doctors don't always see eye to eye. I'm just hoping to get some answers and start the right kind of therapy/use the right kind of orthopedic whatever to help my daughter start walking.
