Neuromuscular hip dysplasia and progressive spastic hip displacement are among the most common orthopedic concerns in non-ambulatory children with cerebral palsy (CP), leading to pain, decreased function, and impaired quality of life. While hip reconstruction surgery can improve quality of life in these children, it can be associated with acute post-operative pain, medical complications, and prolonged hospitalization.
Sometimes the best way to relieve hip pain is to start moving more. Although rest and recovery can be necessary to heal an injury, sitting for too long puts added stress on the hips. The right types of exercises build strength, alleviate pain, improve your range of motion, and help protect your hips in the long haul.
