Treatment for Femoro-Acetabular Impingement

femoro-acetabular-impingement

Pathology

Also known as Anterior Hip impingement which commonly occurs in young active sports people whose sport(s) involves frequent pivoting. It is common in sports such as dancing, hockey, golf and ballet. Common symptoms are usually pain felt in the front of the hip which may come about through particular movements of the leg (including crossing the leg, getting into/ out of the car, getting up from a chair)

There are two types of hip impingement: Cam-type and Pincer -type.  The Cam-type Impingement is where the femoral head is of an abnormal shape and so leads to impingement between the abnormal femur and a normal acetabular rim. The Pincer-type impingement describes the situation where the socket or acetabulum has too much coverage of the ball or femoral head.  This over-coverage typically exists along the front-top rim of the socket (acetabulum) and results in the labral cartilage being “pinched” between the rim of the socket and the femoral head.

Classification/Assessment

Musculoskeletal physiotherapists are trained in thoroughly assessing and diagnosing musculoskeletal injuries and conditions such as Hip Impingement. After a thorough history is taken, assessment includes specific tests and observations to identify the source of pain and any impairment which may contribute. Our musculoskeletal physiotherapists at Pro Physio SA are experienced in adopting and placing an emphasis on an evidence-based approach to patient treatment and management.

Treatment

At ProPhysio SA, after a thorough assessment, our musculoskeletal and sports physiotherapists will help you implement an appropriate rehabilitation program along with evidence based treatment to help you return you to your normal activities. Treatment may include: massage, dry needling/acupuncture, stretches, activity modification, advice and specific exercise prescription. The physiotherapists at ProPhysio SA may also be able to refer you to your Doctor and organize scans if needed.
