My niece was adopted 5 years ago from China, she is now 8 years old and has had problems in her leg development. We originally thought it was rickets or because she was in a crib 20-22 hrs a day and had not developed properly. She had surgery three years ago to "release tension in her hips and legs" but seems to become worse- she twists when she walks and cannot run and her legs are slightly bowed. We are in Little Rock,AR and cannot find a Doctor who knows what to do. Can anyone help?
