Hip impingement pain: Femoroacetabular impingement encompasses a constellation of problems about the hip joint that cause pain with combined hyperflexion and internal rotation. Pain results from the hip bone impinging upon the rim of the acetabulum. Either a prominence of bone on the femoral head-neck junction (Cam lesion) or on the acetabular rim (pincer lesion) and labral tear are noted at surgery when indicated.
