Pediatric Hip Disorders
Hip disorders make it difficult for children to move
What are pediatric hip disorders?
There are a number of hip disorders affecting children that can cause pain in the hips, groin, thighs, or knees. Children may find it difficult to walk, or walk with a limp. Sometimes, even standing can be too painful. If your child experiences pain or difficulty in walking, you should see a pediatric orthopedic specialist.
