How we treated dysplasia of the hip joints, babies

In the first year after the birth of our son, we had few quiet days. One trouble was replaced by another. When the child was about 4 months old, I went with him for a routine inspection by a surgeon.

Usually in 3-4 months babies should be examined by a surgeon or orthopedist. On examination, the doctor determines whether the child has hip dysplasia or not.

Even before my visit to the doctor, I began to suspect that my son had problems with his legs. This was indicated by the incorrect arrangement of the folds on the legs. They were not symmetrical in the child. Although many pediatricians claim that this is not an indicator of dysplasia, I was worried about the folds.


Unpleasant surgeon’s diagnosis

The doctor examined his son and said that there was a suspicion of dysplasia of the hip joints. Then he gave directions for an x-ray of the pelvis. Honestly, I was at a loss. In my life I have never met with such a disease.

The next day, my son and I went to the regional children’s hospital to see a good orthopedist to get his opinion about the legs of the child. On the same day, we made an x-ray in this hospital.

The orthopedist looked at the picture, examined the baby and confirmed the diagnosis – dysplasia with subluxation of the right joint. He also said that the disease is curable, but you need to do massage, exercise and wear stirrups.

What is stirrups – I did not know. To my question about how much time it would be necessary to continue the treatment, the orthopedist answered that, during how many months they put on, they would wear so much stirrups. If the son was 4 months old, then it will be necessary to wear stirrups for at least 4 months.

We wear stirrups and do gymnastics.

At that time, buying stirrups for a baby was a huge problem. But we purchased them and went to the orthopedist to show how to wear and wear them. It was very painful for me to see a child in stirrups. But I understood that it was necessary to avoid the terrible effects of dysplasia.

I did gymnastics for my son every day. I remember 2 exercises:

1. The baby is lying on his back. The parent bends the legs at the knees and gently spreads the legs apart.

2. The child is in the same starting position as in exercise 1. Simulate legs movement on a bicycle.

If we carried our son on our hands without stirrups, then the child’s legs should have been separated. It was also a treatment. Over time, we removed the stirrups, but the son continued to do the exercises.

When the child went, he had crooked legs. But, to our happiness, they have leveled off by three years. His love of riding a tricycle played an important role in this.

So we wore stirrups and treated dysplasia.
