Femoris muscle contractre
My kid is 8 years now and since he started walking. He drags his left leg. When we try to bend his leg (in position where he faces bed)it doesnt bend without him lifting his hips. After so many tests all these years finally one MRI detected "Isolated rectus femoris muscle contracture". Now we are trying to find Doctors in Mumbai who can treat him.
