I'm working on a story in which a main character is born with a twisted leg (I was inspired by Lois Lowry's character Kira in Gathering Blue.) Since I can't ask Lois Lowry, I thought I'd ask here- is this realistic? Is there a name for it? What kind of treatment would be necessary? What kind of impact would it have on his early childhood (late to walk?) and later life? At the moment I only have a rough idea of him, but I definitely like the idea of him having a bad limp- would this be a likely outcome? The story is set in modern day America- no limits on availability of treatment.
