Toddler walking a bit funny

Hi Amanda,

My daughter Erin has been walking for 3 to 4 months now.  Her left leg seems to swing out a bit and she seems to walk slightly on the inside of her left leg.  I have taken her to our GP who says there's nothing to worry about, but I am still a little worried.  It does look like it may be correcting itself, but I'm not sure.  Do you think an Osteopath would be able to tell me if this is something to worry about or not?

many thanks

Hello Sharon

I would definitley have Erin checked out it sounds as though there may be a leg length difference that might need monitoring whilst she is growing.  She won't necessarily need treatment though.  I'm not sure where you are?  If you could let me know I can recommend someone up or down to you?

Sorry for the delay in replying.
