She walks on her tip toes. They said that was because of a tight heel muscle. So the physical therapist sent us to see the podiatry. We sent the Doctor and he took Xrays. He said there was a leg length discrepancy, and had mild hip dysplasia in the right hip socket and said something about is appears to be flattened. I tried to look this up on the internet and all I could find was hip dysplasia in animals. Can anyone tell me something? I really don't understand much of what they were talking about. If I could just figure out a few things I think it would be ok. Can anyone help me?
