The Reason Why A 6 Year Old Child Can’t Walk?
Best regardsrnDoc,rnI have a child who is 6 years old but can’t walk on his own, needs help holding hands and is more active on all fours, the upper left groin is bent and the length of the left leg is almost 10cm shorter, the shape of the leg even small and the soles of the feet do not stand perfectly (tilted to get to the inside).rnThe weight is only 12kg.rnBut for other body parts such as hands, etc., it is normal as well as speech, hearing and vision, even for the brain can be categorized as an intelligent child.rnIf that’s the case, what’s the problem?rnThank you
The problems of child growth and development are indeed diverse, this can be triggered by many things ranging from problems in the womb, at the age of the baby to other problems. Disturbances experienced by your child can be triggered by bone diseases such as:
Rickets or rickets, which occurs due to deficiency of vitamin D and calcium can occur due to kidney disorders, celiac disease, digestive tract disorders, cystic fibrosis and environmental factors Osteomalacia or softening of the bones so that they become bent Lead poisoning Fluoride poisoning Abnormal bone development To determine the condition closely For sure, check with your child's doctor and an orthopedic specialist to assess his condition and provide appropriate therapy, if necessary, a series of examinations will be carried out to assess the condition of the child's bones and nutrition. So that it can be handled more quickly so that the deterioration can be prevented.
Hope it is useful,
