When our baby was 1 month old, we underwent a routine inspection by a surgeon. He carefully examined our legs, said that we have a little uneven folds, and this is a sign of dysplasia. He showed massage exercises that need to be done, and said to come for a re-examination after 2 months.
I, as an exemplary mommy, fulfilled all the requirements, and exactly 2 months later I went to see him again. He examined us and prescribed a massage. After returning home, I sat down on the Internet (I don’t know why I didn’t have enough wits when my daughter was still 1 month old, scolding myself in every way).
I read on the Internet that the diagnosis of Hip Dysplasia cannot be established 100% without an ultrasound or x-ray. Therefore, the next day, I rushed to the clinic again for directions to get to the trauma specialist.
It turned out that our surgeon quit on the same day. Fortunately, my mother’s friend agreed, and my daughter and I were accepted by the traumatologist without a referral or a turn. He immediately sent us to the x-ray.
We went to the other end of the city on an x-ray. Take a picture. X-rays did not reveal dysplasia. But our doctor did give us a referral to the children’s regional hospital, where we were diagnosed with mild dysplasia, prescribed massage and electrophoresis. And also advised not to buy a walker.
I agreed with the massage therapist, I had to run after her fairly, as the professionals in our city can be counted on the fingers, and she is just one of them. More precisely, the best of all.
Each procedure, I carefully watched the actions of the masseuse. At first she laid our girl on her back and began to stroke her legs and arms. After that, it became stronger to massage the thighs, and then turned the baby on the stomach.
Then came stroking and rubbing the back. Then she stretched her feet, turning them in the course and counterclockwise.
After this, the massage became more rigid, the massage therapist bent her legs, spread them apart, made a bicycle.
I experienced more daughter. But she, on the contrary, was in a normal mood and something agukala. 10 sessions we departed. Electrophoresis also passed. Neuropathologist visited. Went to the doctor, they said everything is normal, now just watch.
During the last months I have been doing daily gymnastics at home, I am spreading my legs. Next week we have a follow-up visit in another city at the Regional Hospital. I hope that the diagnosis will be final.
Has anyone else encountered this problem?
