club foot to build musle and gain mass
Hi doc, my daugther is six years old and was born with a club foot .She has had corrective casts and 5 surgeries on the tendons of her foot, and as a result her calve muscle is very inferier to the other leg as is the mass from the knee down , her upper legs appear to have the same mass of muscle as the other .
Is there a spesialist ( KZN area ) in this field who could help us with exerciseses to build up the muscle on her calve and could you please point us in the wright direction.
Thank you !
