Hello Dr.AAAA, You have not mentioned your age nor the actual percentage or type of disability.This needs a detailed clinical evaluation.From your quiry I understand that you are limping while walking, that means there is a shortening of the right leg.This can be corrected by a surgical footwear. if there is a deformity it has to be treated surgically.
