While most people who have hip dysplasia are born with the condition, it is possible to develop later in life. In most cases, patients of hip dysplasia experience relief after a few months of at-home treatment and therapy.
Causes, Symptoms, & Risk Factors
Hip dysplasia is most commonly a result of the ball joint of the hip being moved out of place while in the womb. Even during the early stages of development, the ball and the socket rely on each other in order to form correctly. During the final trimester, the womb may become so cramped that the ball joint shifts from the socket, causing dysplasia. (American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons)
