A guide to Developmental Dysplasia of the Hip

It is a common reaction of most parents who discover their child has a hip condition to experience shock, fear, resentment and anguish to varying degrees. These are all perfectly natural feelings and you should not feel guilty, worried or try to hide your emotions.  No matter if your child is in treatment for 6 weeks or two years - your feelings matter. 

What most parents need to reassure them is clear, factual information about diagnosis, treatment options and caring for a child with Developmental Dysplasia of the Hip (DDH).  Hopefully, this section of the website will help you gain an understanding of your child’s condition and show you how to care for them on a daily basis.
