Hip Dysplasia Treatment in Dubai at CMC Hospital

Your hip joint is like a ball and socket – the femur’s ball fits snugly into the acetabulum socket. However in hip dysplasia also referred to as Development Dysplasia of the Hip (DDH) this socket is underdeveloped or shallow, causing the ball to slip partially or completely out of place. This can lead to pain, instability, and even early-onset arthritis.

Hip Dysplasia Causes

  • Family history (genetics)
  • Birth positioning – Breech babies and those tightly swaddled may have an increased risk.
  • Loose ligaments and muscles may not provide adequate support for the joint.
  • Certain childhood activities, like ballet, may contribute in rare cases.

Hip Dysplasia Indications in Children

  • Newborns – Difficulty spreading legs, uneven leg folds, and clicking sounds in the hip during movement.
  • Toddlers – Limping, waddling gait, leg length discrepancy, and hip pain.

Hip Dysplasia Treatment Options

  • Newborns – A soft harness like the Pavlik brace helps hold the hip in place as it develops.
  • Infants and toddlers – Splints, casts, or surgery may be needed to realign the joint.

Hip dysplasia is highly treatable but early diagnosis and intervention are crucial for preventing pain, instability, and long-term complications. Occasional checkups and monitoring will be recommended to ensure long-term joint health.
