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.

The Melbourne Chiro Clinic offers a warm and nurturing environment for children of all ages to receive congenital hip dislocation treatment. Our friendly chiropractors use a range of treatments to help relieve discomfort, ease tightness, improve range of motion, and restore balance to the body.
