Dragging back leg

Why has my desert toutouse been dragging its back right leg since it came out of hibernation? Any ideas? The other three legs work just fine but it seems the back right leg has limited rotation. No animals have gotten to it, it has a nice 8 foot long borrow with padded walls and cealing, eats veternarian prescribed moistened pellets. It's inder pad does not seem cut, infected or disturbed? Is there a common infliction that causes this.
