Day of Movement Central!

Join us on October 22, 2022 for our 4th Annual Miles4Hips Day of Movement! You can join us vitually or look for an in-person meet-up in your area.

Whether you’re a patient, a caregiver, a friend, a researcher, or a medical provider, we hope you will join us in building community, raising awareness, and supporting the efforts of the International Hip Dysplasia Institute!

Go for a hike, go for a run, push a stroller, roll in a wheelchair, crutch up the block, hit up the playground, get on a bike, have a dance party, do some gardening, or get in some physical therapy. Every movement counts!!!

Crutch and Mobility Training

Nancy Muir, a physical therapist, hip dysplasia patient, and Miles4Hips board member shares these videos on basic crutch and mobility training.  Nancy spent the first few years of her career working in hospitals where she trained patients in these skills daily.  But it wasn’t until she was diagnosed with hip dysplasia and was a patient that she truly appreciated the challenges of having limited mobility.
