Slipped capital femoral epiphysis is a disorder that will most commonly affect adolescents. It occurs when the head of the femur (hip bone) slips through the growth plate and away from the rest of the thigh bone. It is more common in young boys and affects 10 in every 100,000 children in the U.S.
Children with symptoms should be seen by a healthcare provider as soon as possible. Surgical intervention may be necessary. Once the leg is stabilized, a physical therapist can work closely with your child to develop an individualized treatment plan and return your child back to their full mobility.
