Q.

bent foot

My toddler had severe pain and was hospitalised for two days. Xrays were done on his hip and thigh with no breaks detected. 5Weeks on his foot still causes pain, its bent inwards, he can''t rest the front part of his foot and now going to physio.
Will his foot ever be normal again? can physio really help if its an old break?
Should I pay for an xray?

You have not mentioned if your child was injured or if he had an infection of his ankle joint.He should certainly be seen by an orthopaedic specialist again now as he may have torn the ligament of his ankle.
