Description

When a child is diagnosed with Developmental Dysplasia of the Hip (DDH) parents experience a range of emotions and responses. They want to understand not only the condition, but also what the future holds for their child. This comprehensive book covers everything you need to know about DDH, from symptoms and explanations of the condition to details of the treatments involved. It also looks at what life is like when your child is in a cast as well as the emotional side of DDH, an area that is often overlooked. Natalie Trice, whose son was born with DDH, wrote Cast Life specifically for other parents as she knows only too well the questions that run through your mind when a diagnosis is made. This essential book doesn't bombard you with medical jargon, but equips you with the knowledge and facts you need to understand and get to grips with DDH. With comments from other parents and case studies, plus expert advice, Cast Life is a must have book for anyone dealing with DDH. The author, Natalie Trice, regularly writes about DDH, parenting and lifestyle issues for various publications, websites and on her blog, www.justbecauseilove.co.uk. She lives in the UK with her husband and two young sons, Eddie and Lucas. Lucas inspired this book and is still on his DDH journey. Part of the royalties from the sale of the book are donated to Spica Warrior (www.spicawarrior.org), a UK based charity raising awareness of DDH.

Review quote

'DDH is one of the most common congenital abnormalities and it is remarkable that there is so little information out there. This book is essential reading for parents, and indeed healthcare workers, who are involved in the care of children who have the condition and I would love to see it in clinics around the world.' Professor N. M. P. Clarke ChM, DM, FRCS, Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon
