Femoroacetabular Hip Impingement (FAI)

Femoroacetabular impingement (FAI), otherwise known as hip impingement syndrome, is a condition where extra bone grows along one or both of the bones that form the hip joint giving the bones an irregular shape.

The bones rub against each other while moving because they do not fit together perfectly. This friction can damage the joint, causing pain and limiting activity over time. There are three different types of FAI: princer, cam, and combined.

Symptoms of Hip Impingement Syndrome

  • Pain; commonly in the groin area or outside of the hip
  • Inability to turn, twist, and squat without a sharp pain
  • Stiffness
  • Limping
