Limping can be caused by something as simple as a pulled muscle but can also be a sign of more serious trouble, such as Infection in the bone or joint, Kohler's disease (loss of blood supply to a bone in the foot) Poliomyelitis Toddlers’ Fracture Transient Synovitis Septic Arthritis Developmental Dysplasia of the Hip Leg-length discrepancy Better to refer to paediatric orthopaedic. Advise rest for left leg.

Ruta is the helpful for bone-bruises when the area is very sensitive to touch. The bone aches and may seem lame, and the person can feel weak. ruta is useful after arnica in many injuries affecting the joints and bone-coverings.....including imflamation pain etc....
