Conditions

Hip

Femoral acetabular impingement

Femoral acetabular impingement (FAI) is a condition in which there is abnormal contact (impingement) between the ball and socket of the hip joint (femoral head and acetabulum respectively).

Greater trochanteric pain syndrome

Greater trochanteric pain syndrome (GTPS) is an umbrella term for lateral hip pain and commonly involves an issue with the gluteal tendons (gluteus medius and minimus).

Around the acetabulum there is a fibrocartilage ring which is known as the labrum. This deepens the socket and increases the stability of the joint. A labral tear is an injury to this fibrocartilage that covers the acetabulum.
