Femoroacetabular impingement (FAI), also known as hip impingement, as a mechanical or structural disorder of the hip. It can occur in people of all ages, including adolescents and young adults. Some typical symptoms include Stiffness in the thigh, hip, or groin, The inability to flex the hip beyond a right angle,Pain in the groin area, particularly after the hip has been flexed (such as after running or jumping or even extended periods sitting down), Pain in the hip, groin, or lower back that can occur at rest as well as during activity.
The Joint Preservation, Resurfacing and Replacement department will discuss appropriate treatment options with you. Some patients are able to successfully manage hip impingement with conservative therapies, including Reducing certain types of physical activity, Physiotherapy, Pain management,Injections.
This study reported on the interrater reliability of FAI-related physical examination tests among 9 examiners from varying clinical disciplines and backgrounds in a group of symptomatic and asymptomatic adults between the ages of 24 and 48 years. The best reliability, above our arbitrary standard of >0.75 ORA, included signs most commonly validated with surgically confirmed FAI: the log roll test (0.99), the FABER test (0.84), hip IR pain (0.84), and anterior impingement test (0.76). The log roll test was almost universally normal, however limiting the usefulness of the estimate. The 4 tests with an ORA <0.75 were not as familiar to most clinicians in this study and are not as well-described in the literature or correlated with surgically confirmed FAI. Generally, examiners had slightly better agreement on normal findings (NA) than on abnormal findings (PA). Excluding the log roll test, NA ranged from 0.62 to 0.90, while PA ranged from 0.35 to 0.84
