What Conditions Are Treated?
Also referred to as Femoro-Acetabular Impingement (FAI) occurs when the ball of the hip joint (head of the femur) does not have full range of motion within the socket. This causes decreased range of hip joint motion as well as abnormal contact of the hip bones that often leads to cartilage injury and pain.
The labrum is a piece of cartilage that runs along the hip socket. It provides stability to the hip joint and can become torn due to injury or “wear and tear”.
