Video 4. Hip Subluxation -Why So Much Attention?--The Truths and the Myths

It's time for the video # 4..

As I mentioned in the overview I tried to cover some of the most wide-spread worries and concerns addressing them with as much of a bird's eye view as possible.

Unfortunately, too often there is so much hysteria being pumped up about the hip subluxation issue by orthopedic profession -- that at some point one might get absolutely swirled by all the pressure and scare-mongering.

I hope the video 4. "Hip Subluxation- Why So Much attention? -- The truths and the myths" is going to help you to get out of being scared mode and panicked cries for help -- and towards being able to approach this complex issue rationally and consciously.

 

I assure you that you have all the necessary intellectual capacity and background to be able to figure out the truths from the myths -- all you need is a bit of help.

I hope these videos will bring you closer to this state of having a clear and rational understanding of what's going on with your child and become confident of your own capacity to deal with challenges should they come your way.

In the previous post I already mentioned that it was difficult to keep this video short -- I couldn't keep myself on the rails all the time and took several tangential educational detours as well.

Hope you do not mind.

So frankly -- I do not know which video is better -- so I put both on. Your feedback is most appreciated and is going to help me to do better videos for you in the future.

Well, that's pretty much it...

P.S. Please do not forget to press Facebook 'Like' button --so more people can benefit from getting a little bit of rational outlook influx towards this emotionally charged issue of hip subluxation.

Cheers...

P.P.S. Do not forget that the best way is to actually to click on the 'ABR on Vimeo' link above -- and then you can actually download this and other videos from Vimeo website. Then you do not need to deal with streaming delays and play interruptions 'that some of you mentioned before


Hip Subluxation in Cerebral Palsy Video Series Overview

What is the best way to defuse fear and confusion that you are constantly being exposed to by medical establishment? – Knowledge.
To be precise – not any knowledge but parent-centered advanced knowledge.
I feel it is important to distinguish parent-centered advanced knowledge from a diluted and dumbed down versions of medical textbooks that you find on ‘official’ websites on Cerebral Palsy.

Hip Subluxation Video Series intend to do exactly that –give you a comprehensive perspective on the subject that is exploited most often by fear-mongers.

I have prepared 8 videos – each of them at least 30 minutes long covering a subject of hip subluxation extensively, digging deep and going broad in order to build it into the entire context of your CP child’s development – especially for quadriplegic kids.

Yes, it’s a lot of information and yes, you need to do your homework encouraging yourself on making an effort to absorb and digest it. However, considering all the emotional and financial costs that fear and confusion around hip subluxation and other ‘scary’ issues related to legs alignment and mobility impose on you – I think this homework is going to be a worthy investment of your time.
