Medical providers should be your experts for most questions related to your hip dysplasia diagnosis, your treatment options and plans of care, and your mental health needs. However, at Miles4Hips, we also recognize that there is a level of expertise that can only be gained through the experience of living with a hip dysplasia diagnosis or caring for an individual with a hip dysplasia diagnosis.
This education and resource section celebrates those unique contributions that can only be made by PATIENTS, FAMILIES, and FRIENDS who have experienced hip dysplasia and are the experts in living with it.
When enjoying these resources please remember that the information provided here is based on individual patient, family, and friend experiences. Although the Miles4Hips team has included them since we feel that they may be relevant to a number of individuals experiencing hip dysplasia, please note that what is true for some may not necessarily be true for you. This is OKAY! Everyone experiences hip dysplasia in their own way.
We invite you to enjoy these resources and to reach out with any questions, concerns, or resources of your OWN that you feel like patients, families, and friends may benefit from.
