Hello there. I can understand your concern. I hope she is not in too much pain. You have not provided proper history here. You haven't mentioned which joint on which leg is involved. How would I know if you are talking about the hip joint, the knee joint or the ankle joint? And as my colleague mentioned, there may be a decrease in the space rather than increase in the space. To get a better idea, you should have attached the xray along with the report. Consult a orthopedician who suggested the xray and he would guide you further. Physiotherapy might also be needed. Best regards. Dr. Anil Kumar Jain.
