Hip impingement, also known as femoroacetabular impingement (FAI), can cause pain, stiffness, and limited range of motion in the hip joint. While surgery may be necessary in some cases, there are also non-surgical options that can help to alleviate the symptoms and improve hip function.
Physical therapy can be a valuable tool in addressing hip impingement. A knowledgeable physical therapist can help to improve hip mobility, strengthen the muscles around the hip joint, and correct any biomechanical issues that may be contributing to the impingement. This can help to reduce pain and improve overall function.
Another non-surgical approach to addressing hip impingement is modifying activities and avoiding movements that exacerbate the symptoms. This may involve avoiding certain exercises or activities that place excessive stress on the hip joint, and finding alternative ways to stay active that are less taxing on the hip.
In addition, anti-inflammatory medications and corticosteroid injections may be used to help reduce pain and inflammation associated with hip impingement. These medications can provide temporary relief and improve overall comfort, but should be used in conjunction with other non-surgical treatment methods for best results.
