Hip dislocation or dysplasia is the term for a hip socket that doesn’t fully cover the ball portion of the upper thighbone.
Most people are born with hip dysplasia, although some won’t develop symptoms until later in life.
Pain may include deep pain in the front of the groin, pain in the side or back of the hip, or mild limping.
A.M.I.T. ® Explanation: Dislocations can be corrected using manipulation of the hip to re-establish the joint function. Dysplasia can be managed through muscle reactivation and exercising to maintain the integrity of the muscle system to compensate for the hip condition. Surgery may eventually be needed as a person ages. The earlier the A.M.I.T. ® method treatment is initiated the longer it will take before surgery is necessary.
