Team Break-a-Leg is a team of individuals who have hip conditions that affect the femur side of the hip joint. Many of us have undergone femoral osteotomies which are surgeries where the femur is cut and either rotated or repositioned to improve the alignment of the ball and socket of the hip joint.
This is a virtual team and we welcome anyone and everyone – no matter where you are at in your journey – to participate in your own way and at your own pace on our Day of Movement on October 9, 2021 (or whenever!) Ride a bike, take a crutch walk, do some pool exercises, swim, garden, do some yoga, go to the playground, or do your PT exercises. All movement counts!
The Day of Movement is coming up quickly on October 9, 2021! A fun way to participate and raise awareness is to start or join a Team. We have virtual teams, fundraising teams and more! For more information Click Here!

“The Day of Movement on 10/9/21 will be a day for us to celebrate her journey, with all the bad and good that has come from it. We hope people use this day to celebrate their mobility, whatever that looks like for them. We hope this day can bring awareness and funding to a cause that is still not well understood.”
