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.

Go for a hike, go for a run, push a stroller, roll in a wheelchair, do some yoga, get on a bike, have a dance party, hit up the playground, do some gardening, or just do some glute sets. Move on your own, get family and friends to join, or organize a local meet-up. Every movement counts!
Make sure to take plenty of pictures and email them to us (firstname.lastname@example.org) or tag us on social media #m4hdayofmovement for our annual post-event video!
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.
