    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.
