Treatment for Hip Impingement Symptoms

Hip impingement, also known as femoroacetabular impingement (FAI), can cause significant pain and discomfort, affecting your daily activities and mobility. At Pinnacle Surgical Orthopedics, we are experienced in diagnosing and treating hip impingement, providing comprehensive solutions to alleviate your symptoms and improve your quality of life.

Common symptoms of hip impingement include:

  • Groin pain or a deep ache in the hip joint

  • Hip stiffness or a feeling of catching or locking
  • Pain worsens with prolonged sitting, walking, or physical activity

Our experienced orthopedic team at Pinnacle Surgical Orthopedics offers a range of effective treatments for hip impingement, including:

  • Physical therapy: Targeted exercises and stretches to strengthen the surrounding muscles, improve joint stability, and increase range of motion.
  • Medications: Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) may be prescribed to manage pain and reduce inflammation in the hip joint.
  • Injections: Corticosteroid injections can provide temporary relief by reducing inflammation and pain in the affected area.
  • Arthroscopy: Minimally invasive surgery using small incisions and specialized instruments to remove excess bone or repair damaged tissues, restoring normal hip function.

At Pinnacle, our dedicated team, led by Dr. Malcom Baxter, is committed to providing personalized care to address your hip impingement. Contact us today to schedule a consultation and let us help you find effective treatment options tailored to your specific needs, so you can regain your active lifestyle.

Frequently Asked Questions

What can I expect during a hip impingement test?

During a hip impingement test, you can expect a series of movements and physical assessments to evaluate the range of motion and potential impingement in your hip joint. The test may involve bending and rotating your hip in different positions while the doctor or therapist carefully observes and assesses any pain or limitations. It is important to communicate any discomfort or pain you may experience during the test to ensure an accurate evaluation.

When is hip impingement surgery typically necessary?

Impingement surgery is typically necessary when conservative treatments fail to provide relief or improve symptoms. It is often recommended when there is persistent pain, limited range of motion, or significant functional limitations that affect daily activities. However, the need for surgery is determined on a case-by-case basis, and it is best to consult with a healthcare professional for a personalized assessment.
