Limping in children is quite a common problem. Limping, as the word suggest, refers to difficulty in walking, it may be jerky or laboured or anything but not smooth. Some of the very common causes of limp in children may be any kind of injury, which may be internal or external, pain in the leg, especially in the joints or it can also be a structural problem. At times, some serious ailments like rheumatic disorders, Legg-Perthes disease or cancer are also known to cause limping in children. If you see any kind of abnormality in your child's walking or running pattern, it's best to see a paediatrician, seek his/ her advice to understand why your child is limping. The child can undergo treatment and eventually prevent him from suffering from any kind of health risks. How to treat limping in a child largely depends on the cause of limp. If your child is limping due to muscle sprain, then treating the sprain with ice pack will soothe the sprain gradually. Depending upon on the severity of your child's limp, a paediatrician may also prescribe certain mild pain killers to help reduce the pain, spasm and inflammation. Support bandages and crutches may also be used to reduce swelling and ease of walking. If the limp is due to some structural complications, then it requires a surgical treatment. The surgery takes a couple of hours to be completed followed by complete bed rest. Duration and cost of treatment depends on the kind of problem your child is suffering from and the treatment procedure followed.
