My hip often times feels like it’s impinged and it’s uncomfortable. Is this a symptom of a serious problem?
A pinching sensation in the groin can be a sign of a problem with your hip joint. It can be related to numerous problems including femoroacetabular impingement (“FAI”), a labral tear, or cartilage wear (arthritis). Sometimes it can be difficult to differentiate pain stemming from the hip joint itself and pain referred from surrounding structures. Hip joint pain can often be confused with pain referred from the abdomen, the back, and pelvic floor. If you have pain that is not resolving with rest, activity modification, and anti-inflammatories (NSAIDs), it is probably best that you seek evaluation by an orthopedic specialist trained to diagnose and treat your problem
