Hip impact occurs when the kneecap and acetabulum do not fit together properly. Restrictions on movement damage cartilage and can cause pain and arthritis in young adults.
In some cases the ball is too deformed to fit properly in the socket. Sometimes the outside edge of the base extends so far that it covers too much of the sphere. Hip impairment can also be caused by a combination of these two problems.
Most people with hip disabilities experience groin pain during or after hip flexion, such as: B. when running, jumping or sitting for long periods. You may also have difficulty bending your hips past a right angle.
Surgery may be needed to prevent further hip injuries.
