In brief: Varies with age

Primary goals of treatment are to alleviate pain and to prevent lasting deformity of the femoral head.
Treatment often depends on age and severity.Before 6 yrs rest, avoid exercise,range of motion exercises,crutches, walker, or casts, abduction bracing.Sometimes operations for older patients including femoral and iliac osteotomies.
