Femoro-acetabular (hip joint) impingement

A condition present in many adults where the ball and socket of the hip joint do not fit together very well in certain positions (usually flexion or twisting) due to boney prominences – these can be on the ball or the socket. Usually not painful (but can caused restricted movement) the prominences can predispose to labral damage, which then leads to pain deep in the groin.
