There are many causes of femoroacetabular impingement

Femoroacetabular impingement is a condition that affects the hip joint and is caused by irregularities in the shape of the hip or surrounding soft tissue, such as muscles and ligaments. When these abnormalities limit the range of motion of the hip joint, it can cause damage to the joint surface over time leading to pain in obese individuals who are physically active in sports. This can be due to an excessive amount of friction on the edge of either the femoral neck or acetabulum which contains cartilage.

What is femoroacetabular impingement?

Femoroacetabular impingement (FAI) is a condition of the hip joint which develops due to excessive pressure in the joint. Generally, as an individual matures and their hip is exposed to repetitive motions, such as during sports activities, over time certain factors may lead to enlargement or an increase in friction within the joint space. The area of the femoral head where it meets the socket of the hip joint becomes worn and flattened leading to a decrease in necessary space needed for movement. FAI can cause a gradual decrease in mobility, stiffness, discomfort and restrict overall range of motion if left untreated.

What are the symptoms of femoroacetabular impingement?

Femoroacetabular impingement (FAI) can cause discomfort in the hip joint due to a misalignment of the bones. Symptoms of this condition typically include pain during hip movement, particularly activities such as twisting and extending the leg while standing or sitting. Additional symptoms may be felt in the groin area, and instances of reduced range of motion in the hip can also occur. If left untreated, FAI can lead to further injury or damage to the hip cartilage as well as worsening of existing symptoms.
