Allyiah’s Story

Allyiah shares her hip dysplasia journey through an informational text. Did you know there is a study that reports that many adults with hip dysplasia have symptoms for more than 5 years and consult with more than 3 healthcare providers before receiving an accurate diagnosis? Allyiah talks about the challenges she faced, and how it took many years and many providers before getting an accurate hip dysplasia diagnosis. She is an example of true perserverence in the face of adversity, and provides an example of why it is important for patients to trust their bodies and their instincts and to keep advocating for themselves to find the right care team.
