About Us

Up to 1 in every 50 babies are being treated for hip dysplasia in Australia currently. Yet many parents have never heard of the condition until the diagnosis and are left overwhelmed and bewildered.

Over the past few years, late diagnosis of the condition has increased; whilst not life threatening, it can be life changing.

Our mission is to increase the availability and accessibility of resources, education and support for people working with and impacted by hip dysplasia.

What is Hip Dysplasia?

The hip joint is made up of a ball and socket; the femoral head of the thigh bone (femur) is the ball and the acetabulum of the pelvis is the socket. Loose ligaments around the joint can allow for misalignment of varying degrees to occur. The hip joint is classified as displaced when the ball and socket do not fit together in their 'normal' position. Sometimes this is due to abnormal development and/or lack of growth.
