What is Hip Dysplasia?

The International Hip Dysplasia Institute website is a great resource for learning more about hip dysplasia.

Hip dysplasia is a general term for infantile hip instability, dislocation, or shallowness of the hip socket. Hip instability and dislocation are more likely to occur during infancy, while a shallow stable socket is more often discovered in adolescence or adulthood.

Team Break-A-Leg!

The Day of Movement is almost here, October 9, 2021!  There are lots of ways to participate, and making or joining a virtual team is one of them.

Learn about Team Break-A-Leg! Click Here

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!

Support Team Saxton!

Saxton is a premed student, powerlifter and hiker. He had his first PAO in July and is preparing for his second in January.

Growing up, I played football and I wrestled so I’m no stranger to pain or injuries, but this has by far been the most intense and painful recovery I’ve ever had to endure.

I am excited to raise money for the International Hip Dysplasia Institute with Miles4Hips and support their mission to raise money for hip dysplasia research.
