Q:How common is hip displasia in infants and what are some common treatments?
More Answers to “How common is hip displasia in infants and what are some common treatments?“Hip Displasia is a defect seen in a very small percentage of children. Much more common is Scholiosis and Thumbjam. Unfortunately the severe manifistation of Hip Displasia is a condition which might require the child being placed into a body cast for possibly up to six months!The cast holds both legs spread open at 90 degree angles from the hips. There are of course other treatments, however this one is very common. It is of course a concern regarding the later development of standing and walking autonomously but the alternative is of course the hips deteriorating due to the deformity.I’m sorry to bring the cast to your attention, but it is much less of a trauma for a baby than an older child or an adult, so act quickly.Good luck and God bless if you are asking on behalf of an actual child. It is not a “common” condition.
It is quite common. It actually is recommended here that if your baby is delivered via C section you take it to a chiropractor before it is 6 months old. Though don’t panic not all c section babies require it. A good chiropractor will take an xray first and then determine if it is necessary.
