Congenital Hip Dislocation Treatment

Congenital Hip Dislocation Treatment

Congenital hip dislocation occurs when a baby’s hip joint forms abnormally during pregnancy, leading to an unstable hip that may be prone to dislocation. Typically diagnosed in newborns, the condition becomes worse as the child gets older.

At Melbourne Chiro Clinic, we offer congenital hip dislocation treatment designed to help restore proper movement to the spine and pelvis in a comfortable and non-invasive way. Our chiropractors tailor treatments to suit the age, body, health and condition of each patient to ensure the best level of chiropractic care is delivered.

Causes & Symptoms

While causes of this condition are often unclear, factors that can contribute to its development include genetic predisposition, breech presentation of the baby, and lower amniotic fluid levels in the womb. It can also occur due to a lack of space in the uterus, leading to a higher incidence of the condition in the babies of first-time mothers.

Congenital hip dislocation treatment will often be sought for symptoms including:

  • Stiff hip joints
  • Outward-turning legs
  • Different leg lengths
  • Restricted motion
  • Asymmetrical folds on the legs and buttocks when the legs are extended
  • A clicking noise when the hip is rotated

However, the condition can sometimes be symptomless.
