I am a dancer, aerialist, yoga and Pilates instructor and was diagnosed with Hip Dysplasia at age 29 after 10 years of experiencing un-diagnosed pain. It basically shattered my entire career and income stream for a number of years. I underwent a Periacetabular Osteotomy and the extensive recovery process required.

After months of rehab and a cautious but dedicated training regiment, I recovered to almost full potential and was back to performing in under a year. Every story is unique, but I would like to provide some hope for athletes out there who are facing this diagnosis. I wrote a book (Anatomy Riot) that has been helpful to people on the Adult Hip Dysplasia Facebook group and am happy to chat with anyone who feels compelled to reach out. Learn more about me, my book and get contact info at www.movementinspired.com

You are likely on this site for a reason and my heart goes out to you!

    Hi Emily,

    I’m so glad for you being able to defeat your hip Dysplasia :) I used to dance too, but my doctor forbided it after surgery saying it would make my joint wear out faster…but I still dance, he won’t get it that it’s what I NEED to do!

    Fay,

    Indeed. As Martha Graham once said “a dancer dies twice—once when they stop dancing, and this first death is the more painful.” I wish you all the best!
