Hip dysplasia: The hip socket is a ball and socket joint. It forms correctly when the ball is sitting correctly in the "socket area" so the socket can develop correctly around it (this is not finished at birth yet). Because of the CP, the ball of the femur may not be sitting quite right and so the socket around it is not forming correctly, which could lead to problems as child starts/is walking.
