you want to be real careful with this as if there is nerve involvement going on you could see a lifelong disability or something they need to do surgery on
Thanks so much for your quick reply - he's sleeping now, but I'm not sure what you mean by turn the foot over (?). He definitely corrects it if I flex the foot at the tarsus and metatarsus when he's standing. he doesn't seem to have any pain along the leg and hip on palpation either. Any further clarification is much appreciated!
