After seeing me break my hip and watching my recovery, my friend Stacie has become interested in how cyclists recover from hip injures. There seems to be little research on the topic. Primarily a lack of data. I had told her that after breaking my hip, a ton of other cyclists contacted me about their experience breaking their hips and femurs. Stacie saw an opportunity to collect this data. So, if you’ve had this problem or know of someone that has(please forward), take some time to fill out the survey below. It only takes a couple minutes. Thanks.
Research Objective: To identify the type of hip fractures cyclists sustain, mechanism of injury, recovery and when they return to cycling.
