Editorial Reviews


"A very understandable, logical approach to a very common group of problems.....all parents should read this book." -- Robert K. Rosenthal, M.D. Asst. Clinical Professor of Orthopedic Surgery, Harvard Medical School.

"I enjoyed reading "Is your Child walking right". It should serve an important and useful purpose, particularly to parents and nonorthopedic professionals. I found it to be clear and easily understood." -- William Berenberg, M.D. Professor of Pediatrics, Harvard Medical School.

"Sound, simply and elegantly written, and gives parents an understanding of their children's feet which should help them make intelligent decisions. I like this book very much." -- T. Berry Brazelton, M.D. Best-selling author and Chief of Division of Child Development, Children's Hospital, Boston.

Format: Paperback
When my daughter was diagnosed with hip dysplasia, I was devasted! She had to wear what is called a Wheaton Harness for the first three months of her life. It was heartrenching to see her in this little contraption. But, after reading this book, I was able to better understand her 'condition' as not being life threatening and being 100% correctible as long as she was treated promptly. After many ultrasounds and wearing the harness as directed, she is now almost 4 and walks correctly and without any evidence of hip dysplasia. This book truely helped me through a tough time. It is very easy to read and understand. I highly recommend it to every parent who has to deal with this situation. It is an A+ book!
