Doctor :   Hi
Doctor :  
How can I help you?
User :   Hello
User :  
Actually my son is 2 years old
Doctor :   Ok

User :  
but when he walks he puts his feets slightly inwards at an angle
Doctor :  
Ok
User :  
and he sits & sleeps most of the time like muslims pray their nammaz
Doctor :  
Ok
Doctor :  
The second one you mentioned is not of concern
Doctor :  
But the first one is a good observation
User :  
but he never sits with normally like folded legs on eacg other
Doctor :   Children do not start off like that usually
Doctor :  
So, you need not worry about that all
User :  
his both legs are always backward ubder his buttock
Doctor :   Yes, I know
Doctor :  
It is seen in most of the healthy cchildren
Doctor :  
You need not worry
User :   it will become fine by time or do we need some surgery ?

Doctor :   It will rectify over time

Doctor :  
But I would suggest you to get it examined physically once by your Pediatrician
User :   we have discussed earlier with two senior doctors .

User :  
they were from orthopaedics
Doctor :  
Ok
User :  
they agreed that during walking his feets are slightly inwards
Doctor :  
What was the opinion?
User :  
and first doctor asked that in some childrens the angle near back of some children is slightly less or more & we used wear him some special shoes in which his feets will remain straight
Doctor :  
Ok
Doctor :  
I would suggest you to take the opinion of a Pediatrician as well once
User :   if it gets rectified by itself by the age of 7-8 yeras then it is fine otherwise they will do surgesry

Doctor :   Ok

User :  
it is not a pediatric problem
Doctor :  
But do get an opinion from the Pediatrician as well'
Doctor :   As it will reconfirm

Doctor :  
and mostly decrease the chances of surgery
User :   that is fine but what is your opinion for such cases ?
Doctor :   Nothing can be said without an examination and a x-ray

Doctor :  
Physical examination is quite essential
User :   it is true as i see him everyday that he puts his feets slightly inwards while walking
Doctor :  
Ok
Doctor :  
But the thing which has to be confirmed is that if he is doing it just as a functional variant
Doctor :  
or is it due a structural problem
Doctor :  
That has to be confirmed with some investigations like X-ray
User :   ok.. but i didn't understand what is functional variant
Doctor :   Just a change in the way of walking

Doctor :  
which does not have any structural problem
Doctor :  
That can be rectified by changing his style of walking
User :   ok... thanks for the information

Doctor :   Please fill the feedback form say done when done.

Doctor :   Is there any thing else I can help you with?
