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!
We welcome patients, family members, friends, medical providers, and anyone else looking for an excuse to get out and move for a good cause! It doesn’t cost anything to participate, but we welcome anyone who is interested to buy a 2021 team tee shirt or make a donation to the International Hip Dysplasia Institute to fund hip dysplasia education, research, and technological advances.
