The trained experts at iOrtho treat a variety of conditions involving problems with the hip, select a condition below to learn more.

Femoroacetabular Impingement, commonly called FAI is a condition in which there is abnormal contact between the femoral head/neck junction and the rim of the acetabulum.

There are three types of Femoroacetabular Impingement; Pincer, Cam, and Combined. Individuals with this condition will often experience pain occurring in the groin area and around the hip made worse with activity that requires hip flexion. 

Commonly seen in athletes participated in high impact sports, hip labrum tears involve the ring of cartilage that follows the outside rim of your hip joint socket. The labrum cushions the hip joint and acts like a rubber seal or gasket to hold the femoral head securely within the hip socket.

Tears are not always caused by trauma and may be caused by structural abnormalities and normal wear and tear so some individuals may not experience immediate symptoms, instead they find themselves coping with the following:

  • Pain in your hip or groin after long periods of standing, sitting or walking
  • Sensation of locking, clicking or catching in your hip
  • Stiffness or limited range of motion in your hip

Hip bursitis is a condition in which a bursa sac on the inside or outside of the hip becomes irritated and inflamed, affecting the bursa and the soft tissue around it. A bursa is a sac of synovial fluid, rich in protein and collagen that acts as a cushion to protect soft tissue, such as tendons, ligaments and muscle, from friction and excess pressure.

Tendonitis in the hip is inflammation and degeneration in the tendons often related to stress and overuse. This pain happens over time and can cause:

  • Tenderness 
  • Stiffness
  • Pain coming and going through the day
  • Discomfort when contracting muscles

Arthritis is a condition that results in degeneration of the cartilage within the joint. The symptoms of arthritis are primarily pain and stiffness causing difficulty with prolonged standing and ambulation as well as with ADLs such as putting on shoes and socks
