Tips & Hints
Healthy Hips Australia has developed handouts for parents by parents who’ve been through a hip dysplasia journey with their child/children. We hope you find the practical tips and hints helpful. Please note these handouts are intended to support, not replace, discussion with your doctor or healthcare professionals.
There are a number of videos available online that provide practical tips and how-to demonstrations for managing various hip dysplasia treatments. We'll feature a selection of these over-time so keep an eye on this section.
Local Support Networks
Healthy Hips Australia will be setting up local HHA support groups across Australia run by trained volunteers. While these are being established, we offer online support, so please don’t hesitate to reach out to us via our Contact form or Facebook page.
