I wouldn't crate confine . You need motion to keep things strong , especially ligaments and cartilage. If the disfunction happened after the posing and having that one foot extended (too far and unnatural because it was without motion ) , then it could be like the ladies who wear heels and then go to wearing flats . Or flats and then having some function that requires more formal dress and heels. That heel has not been stretched out . Used to being one length.
so with dog laying down , take that foot and gently move it the other way. with gradation in compressing , gently rock , release, compress a little more , till you have full range again.
Natural vitamin C --
for dogs doing urban rescue , disaster search on rubble and very uneven or shifting ground a full range of motion stretch , extend and fold (compress) helps prevent injuries.
