My daughter had an Osteotomy, her femer was coming out of the socket and they had to build up the bone to keep in place. She was in a cast from her chest to her toe. I have been told by the Chiropractor that she has a leg difference but the doctor says no and says this is going to be as good as it gets for her. She is active, plays basketball and they tell her not to play. How can you force her to stop something she absolutely loves. She understands the consequences if she decides to continue, she will have pain, she says its okay mom, I can do it for 2 more years. Just so she can play.View Thread
