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?
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.
