post polio doctors

Does anyone know of any Post Polio doctors in the tampa bay florida area?
My sister had polio when she was a child and one leg is shorter then the other. She managed pretty well until just recently and now she can hardly walk on it without severe pain. She went to the doctor and the doctor had xrays taken but nothing shows up on it. The doctor just seems to let it go and hope it goes away. I don't think its going to go away I am afraid its going to get worse for her. I would like her to see a doctor that knows about polio.Your help would be greatly appreciated. Maybe you know of a site that talks about these doctors. I would take her out of state if I have to.
Have a happy healthy life

Re: post polio doctors

Hi kerricats,

Your sisters symptoms sound just like my husbands. My husband is 58 and just missed the cure. We went to Cleveland Clinic and had tests done. He had x-rays, in both feet, and an EMG.The results have not come in yet, except for the e-rays, they found a broken bone in his polio foot..Dr. said it is most likely a stress fracture from the way he has had to walk over the years. He had polio in the left foot only. Now his right foot is numb and giving him a great deal of pain. We will be in Florida for the winter. Not too far from Tampa. Not use to this forum. If you find anything, can you leave me a reply on this forum?

I truly hope someone can help your sisters pain.

Much appreciated,
