Looking through the internet I wanted to bring you information from actual parents who have been through having a child with hip dysplasia. Here is one I found with advice on what to expect (and how to cope) when your child with congenital hip dysplasia is placed in a spica cast.
“Our daughter Jane was diagnosed with hip dysplasia in 2012. After spending 3 months in a pavlic harness, we learned that she’d have to spend at least 12 weeks in a spica cast. As a result… we amassed a lot of tips, tricks and best practices about how to care for a child in a spica cast. Therefore, we’d like to pass this knowledge along for parents of hip dysplasia children that are about to experience life in a spica cast.
This site is a labor of love and a way to give back to the community. We’ve done our best to make it a concise list of tips, tricks and best practices. Only those that we’ve learned or have been shared with us.
Therefore, if you have any ideas, practices or comments that you would like us to pass along to other parents of hip dysplasia children, please email us“
