After a long search for the cause of her hip pain that pulled her out of professional soccer, Morgan Reid Allen found her answer at AHI
"I played professional soccer for the last three years, and I started developing hip pain about two years ago. I sought counsel from three different doctors and three physical therapists. I had multiple injections and participated in physical therapy for eight months with almost no relief. I had pretty much given up hope that I would return to sports, and I thought the pain I was in was my new normal.
Eventually, my husband encouraged me to see the American Hip Institute team. I finally agreed, and within one appointment, I was diagnosed with something that had gone undiagnosed for over two years. It was immensely important to me to be able to pinpoint my pain source and seek a solution.
As a professional athlete, I needed to work out multiple times a day at a very high intensity. As my pain worsened, I could not practice, walk without pain, or sleep well at night. My concerns were no longer just soccer-specific but also encompassed my day-to-day functions. After surgery, all of those issues have been addressed.
At 4.5 months out from surgery, I have been able to start jogging, cutting, and jumping. I have goals of returning to skiing and tennis soon and eventually returning to soccer at the one-year mark.
My care at American Hip Institute has been very personalized. I feel that I am treated as more than just a patient here, but rather as a person. Being able to get the answers I was looking for for over two years was life-changing for me. I cannot speak more highly of the team."
