After a week filled with high school basketball practices and track meets, Annie, a Chicagoland high school athlete, began to complain of left hip pain. She went to physical therapy for months, but nothing relieved her pain. Finally, Annie’s physical therapist recommended she see the American Hip Institute.

Annie was diagnosed with a labral tear. Her family and the AHI team shared the same goal: to get Annie back in the game, pain free.

Annie recovered well from her first hip surgery and returned to running track, but began feeling pain in her right hip. Her mother quickly scheduled another appointment at AHI and was impressed by their efficiency in moving from onset of pain to diagnosis to surgery.

Annie once again bounced back and is now able to enjoy the sports she loves!

If your child or a family member is experiencing hip pain, contact the friendly experts at American Hip Institute in Chicagoland for a consultation.
