Default 4.5 month old female jumped off bed

Every morning when I am getting ready for work I will let my puppy sleep on our bed. She is always very good with laying down and watching me get ready, but today she suddenly jumped off. It's a larger bed with a plush top so the jump off is quite high. I'm very worried about her hips and if that could have caused damage leading to hip dysplasia. She was walking a little strange and did a "bunny hop" run around the house afterwards.

From experience with German shepherds and hip dysplasia, does anyone have any thoughts? I've always tried to be very protective of her hips and hip dysplasia is my one concern.

Her parents had certified hips so genetics would not be a huge concern of mine, only environmental situations that would lead to a problem.
