Thanks for writing to us.
The possibility of walking in your sister can only be told after a complete examination by an orthopedic surgeon. Without the examination and proper X-rays, it is difficult to assess the damage done by polio and thus to suggest a treatment.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
