The hip is a ball-and-socket joint that normally glides smoothly, but if there is a deformity of the ball or the socket, it can cause hip impingement, or femoro acetabular impingement. To relieve pain, rest, physical therapy, and pain medications are first recommended to treat hip impingement. However, if nonsurgical treatment fails, surgery may be appropriate. If the hip cartilage is not too damaged, the surgeon can reshape the ball or socket, relieving the impingement. A technique that the surgeon may also use is called microfracture, which includes cutting away damaged cartilage and making tiny fractures in the bone so new cartilage can grow. If cartilage is severely damaged where it cannot be repaired, a hip replacement may be the only option to relieve pain.
