Answer to your Health Question

Question: My foster son that is 2 can barely walk. He was seen at the ER and by a bone dr with xrays. No answer to why. Can you give other reasons for this to occur? Linda

Answer: Dear Linda,

Walking is a developmental milestone for children and the time when this occurs is unique to each child. If a two year old has not started walking and crawling is all he does then a visit to the pediatrician is recommended as he/she can explore any development difficulties the child may have.

X-Rays can show a doctor if there is a fracture in the bone, but other conditions can affect walking that would not be visible in an x-ray.
