Arthrodiastasis for 2 months with pendular active-passive movement is a worthwhile try.

FROM: Michael Mayor, MD

While I've not had experience with hip arthroscopy in spondyloepiphyseal dysplasia, developmental hip dysplasia is increasingly recognized as a cause of infolded labral cartilage, which with approaching or established skeletal maturity can tear, producing an internal derangement pattern not unlike that seen in knee internal derangement due to cartilage lesions, these of the meniscus.

Is hip joint arthroscopy available to your patient?
