Over the past decade, there has been a noticeable increase in the number of young athletes and weekend warriors who experience hip pain. Ice hockey players, in particular, have been found to be suffering from a condition known as “femoral acetabular impingement” (FAI), which is believed to be a major cause of early osteoarthritis of the hip especially among athletes under the age of 40. FAI develops in athletes as the result of subjecting the hip to repeated extreme range-of-motion activities (skating) that lead to impingement and other degenerative changes. In the beginning, there may be no pain. In time, however, those suffering from FAI are likely to experience limited hip movement as well as pain. Chiropractic treatment can help.
