What is Hip Dysplasia?

Hip dysplasia refers to a misalignment or deformation in the hip joint. Doctors typically detect hip dysplasia shortly after birth or during infant check-ups. Hip dysplasia in infants and children can develop from the use of restrictive seats or positions or can be passed down as a genetic condition. However, there are cases where hip dysplasia goes undetected until adulthood when everyday use and stress on the hip joint has already caused considerable harm.

There are varying ranges and degrees of hip dysplasia from mild hip dysplasia to severe. Hip dysplasia can damage the cartilage in your hip joint and lead to labral tears and early osteoarthritis. As time passes, the intensity and frequency of the pain generally increase. Although you may need a hip replacement at some time in your life, getting treatment for symptoms of hip dysplasia can help delay surgery and provide long-term pain relief.

Do you have pain from hip dysplasia?

Our physical therapists will customize a rehabilitation plan for pain caused by hip dysplasia. We will work in an effective way to get you back on your feet, focused on your wellness before, during and after therapy.
