    My six year old granddaughter has begun to walk on the inside of her right foot. she had hip dyspasia when she was born and wore a cast for 9 months. Her shoe is completly worn down on the inside, and her foot doesn't seem to lie flat when she stands, but instead leans toward the inside.

    I don't know if you are describing common excessive pronation or a result of or complication flowing from her congenital hip dysplasia, which, even after treatment, normally calls for ongoing developmental monitoring. But certainly this is not something that can be diagnosed on a forum, and she needs to see either a podiatrist or an orthopedist familiar with the diagnosis and treatment of foot problems in children. Your pediatrician is probably inadequately trained and knowledgeable in such matters. I would think that action, if needed, would best be taken earlier rather than later. So get some REAL and well-founded advice, which can only be obtained through a hands-on examination.
