Hip Impingement

The first noticeable symptom of hip or femoracetabular impingement is often deep groin pain with activities such as walking. In some cases, the groin pain doesn't start until the person has been sitting and starts to stand up. There is often a slight limp because of pain and limited motion. Groin pain associated with femoroacetabular impingement can be accompanied by clicking, locking, or catching when chronic impingement has resulted in a labral tear.
