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).
Hip Joint Labral tear
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.
Osteoarthritis (OA), often referred to as ‘wear-and-tear’ or ‘degenerative joint disease’, is a condition in which the surfaces within your joints become damaged so the joint doesn’t move as smoothly as it should.
