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.

The International Hip Dysplasia Institute has been the world leader in providing educational resources related to hip dysplasia. The following interview with its director, Charles Price, shares some tips for parents.

Support Networks

We understand how lonely and isolated you can feel when no one around you has experience with hip dysplasia. We can connect you with people in your area and organise play & support groups both in person and online across Australia, so keep an eye out for a group close to you.

For upcoming catch ups visit our Events on the Facebook page.
