About Hip Pain

Hip conditions can be very debilitating.

They can affect simple activities such as driving, sitting at a desk, or walking through the grocery store, as well as physically demanding activities like running and strength training.

Hip Impingement (FAI)

Impingement is the result of a structural abnormality of the femur (cam deformity) and/or socket (subspine or pincer impingement deformity). It frequently causes hip acetabular labral tears and is a known cause of premature hip arthritis.

Early diagnosis and treatment is important if one hopes to limit the long-term damage to the hip cartilage.
