Musculoskeletal Disorder Diagnosis
What's your diagnosis?
Developmental Dysplasia of the Hip. For children 0 to 6 months of age, DDH is treated with a Pavlik harness. Proper fitting of the Pavlik harness is demonstrated. The hips should be held in 90° of flexion and the infant should then sit in a relaxed position of flexion and abduction. Hyper flexion and hyperabduction should be avoided are associated with femoral nerve palsy and femoral head osteonecrosis, respectively.
