Infant would not extend left leg and did not have full range of motion. Examination revealed a sacral subluxation. After adjustment, child could extend left leg and had full range of motion. Patient returned one week later, no hip dysplagia evident. According to the parents, their orthopedist was amazed and could not understand what had happened. Parents did not tell him that they had taken the baby to a chiropractor.
