Hip Dysplasia

Hip Dysplasia

Brandi Monk

 I’ve pretty much had issues with both my hips my whole life. I had my first hip surgery in 6th grade.

In 2010, I suffered a labral tear and continued to have problems with it ever since. I went to my local orthopaedic doctor for him to repair the torn labrum. In October 2017, I noticed my hip was acting up again, so I had another surgery to help repair the labral tear. I was in physical therapy for six weeks and I was still not feeling very good about my hip.

Going into her sophomore year at Fort Payne High School, my daughter, Brooke, started experiencing really severe back and leg pain. Brooke, who is currently a member of the University of Montevallo Falcons softball team, always had problems with back and leg pain, but it started to severely affect her activity about 3 or 4 years ago.

I have lived an active lifestyle my whole life. In addition to be physically active, I have taught yoga, spin and Pilates for many years and even ran a half marathon. I have always enjoyed being active and while also helping others accomplish their fitness goals. In my wildest dreams, I could not have imagined I would have bi-lateral hip replacement before I was 50 years old!

I was a patient before I ever began working at Andrews Sports Medicine. Despite being born with hip dysplasia, I grew up with a love for sports. I began playing softball at three years old and soon after learned karate. As I got older, my love for sports evolved into a passion for running. However, I experienced more pain the more active I was. I was forced to decide if I would allow my circumstances define me. I chose resilience.
