What causes FAI? It occurs when the hip bones do not form normally during childhood and there are two types. One is caused by a deformity of the ball at the top of the femur and the other is a deformity of the socket. These are referred to as a cam impingement and pincer impingement. Sometimes individuals can experience problems with both the ball and the socket.
This condition is commonly referred to physical therapy for treatment & rehab. Interested in learning more?
