    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Legg Calve Perthes Disease

    My younger brother was diagnosed when he was an 8th grader; he went through the surgery with the metal plate in his hip and all that, but he still needs it taken out. Getting straight to the point, he still has his limp and wants to be more comfortable in shoes. He is a sophomore for he will be doing a lot of walking around in the high school. Does anyone know of a custom shoe place that specializes in the disease? Preferably in the Dallas area (Mckinney, Plano, Allen) Please respond as soon as possible, it would be greatly appreciated. You can email me the info at t.tajalle@ymail.com or just respond to this discussion. Thanks!
