Femoral acetabular impingement (FAI) is a condition where patients experience pain and impairment from a malformed femoral head or acetabular rim. Due to this structural abnormality, impingement occurs with certain lower-extremity movements. Early recognition of FAI is important to clinicians, as perpetual impingement has been linked to labral tears and early osteoarthritis. The purpose of this course is to review the structural pathology and clinical signs associated with FAI. Exercise-based modifications are presented to help prevent subsequent injury and permanent mobility issues.


The goal of this continuing education program is to provide physical therapists with an introduction to the clinical diagnosis and management of femoral acetabular impingement. After studying the material presented here, you will be able to:
  • Understand the clinical signs and symptoms associated with FAI
  • Recognize therapeutic exercise recommendations and modifications appropriate for FAI
  • Recognize the anatomical structures responsible for the clinical signs and symptoms of FAI
