Hip Impingement

Hip impingement occurs when the femoral head (ball of hip) pinches against the socket of the hip. This generally occurs in young and middle-aged adults. This condition pinches and causes damage to the labrum (cartilage pad) of the hip. One symptom of hip impingement is pain in the groin and front of the hip. This is often felt when the patient rises from a seated position.

Icing/ Heat Instructions

Ice 20-30 minutes 2-3 times per day.

Treatment Plan

The treatment we use for this condition is most often in the form of medical massage/ trigger point therapy and decompression therapy. This condition generally takes 4-6 weeks to resolve when proper treatment and self-care are followed. The doctor may treat you from 1-4x per week according to the severity and history of the condition.
