Hip FAI Diagnosis, Treatment, and Recovery
Femoroacetabular Impingent, also known as Hip Impingement or FAI, occurs when an extra bone grows along one or both of the hip bones that form the hip joint. Then, these bones rub together, which causes pain.
To identify if you have FAI, X-rays can be used or MRIs. If you have hip pain, you can schedule an appointment with JIS Orthopedics by phone at (866) 604-8766 or online.
While waiting for an appointment, this post can help you determine the likelihood that you have FAI.
What does hip impingement feel like?
Someone with hip impingement may feel stiffness or pain in the groin, front of the thigh, or buttocks. Range of motion may be diminished, and you may hear popping and clicking in the hip.
Some people do not have symptoms, and some people have symptoms periodically (especially when sitting for long periods of time).
If you leave this untreated, it can damage the hip joint and become more, and more persistently painful.
