From Anatomy to Discovering the Patient!
- Hip pain associated with osteoarthritis (OA) is the most common cause of hip pain in older adults. Prevalence studies have shown that the rates for adult hip OA range from 0.4% to 27%.
- Nonarthritic hip joint pain may be related to numerous underlying causes, such as femoroacetabular impingement, structural instability, acetabular labral tears, osteochondral lesions, loose bodies, ligamentum teres injury, and septic conditions
Labral tears in up to 20% of athletes with groin pain
Cam deformities more common in men (20%) than women (5%)
Pincer deformities more common in women (19%) than men (15%)
Prevalence of dysplasia in new presenters with hip pain: 32%
Labral tears have been observed in up to 96% of older individuals
