Hip dysplasia?

My 8 month old sons doctor thinks he has hip dysplasia. What is it exactly? All they told me was my son would need braces. Is this the reason why my son still cant crawl? Will this kep him from crawling or walking or will he need pt for it?

  • Google it; lots of info out there. It could be the reason he's not crawling and he may require orthotics and pt for it (DD wore orthotics and did p/t for years but due to other issues, not hip dysplasia). These are questions really better suited to the doctor.
