Normally the child will undergo non-surgical treatment to maintain the position of the hip in a correct alignment.

An abduction splint or Pavlik Harness helps to keep the hips in the correct position. The splint / harness has to be worn for about 3 to 6 months. Your child will be reviewed regularly during this time to ensure that the splint fits well.

If the hip does not reduce with the use of splint / harness, surgical methods may be used to reduce the hip. After surgery, a plaster cast will be used to maintain the correct position.
