The hip is a ball and socket joint and provides a platform for all of our lower limb movements. It is a stable joint containing cartilage (acetabula labrum) and also has surrounding soft tissues to hold it in placeBook A Consultation
The symptoms of Hip Impingement are:
The hip can have some ‘design’ differences which result in the ball (femoral head) not moving fully or fluently in the socket (acetabulum). As a result the hip can ‘pinch’ surrounding tissue, bone or its labrum resulting in Hip Impingent or Femoro-acetabula Impingement. This can occur in all age groups from those who are very mobile, to those that have stiffness in their hips.
