The reason you were told to go to a vet for a "simple" thing is that
birds hide problems/illnesses. There is no way of knowing if there
is internal damage or not. The same would apply to you /kids etc, if
after a week the bird/person is still limping it is time to go to
someone qualified to find out what is wrong.
