Perthes Disease (Legg-Calve-Perthes Disease/Syndrome)
Hi, my 7 year old daughter was recently diagnosed with Perthes Disease. Although, she is under great medical care, I have not met anyone who has been through this before. I have many questions. My daughter is a very happy little girl who is also very active. I am concerned about the level of activity that she is supposed to have. Her doctor here in Florida only told me that she was not allowed to do P.E., run, jump, and in general, that she was supposed to not stress that leg. However, he did not recommend any therapy. Anyone?
