Femoroacetabular impingement in a high school female athlete.

Journal Article (Journal Article)

The patient was a 17-year-old female who was referred to a physical therapist by her primary-care physician with a chief complaint of bilateral hip and groin pain. The patient was treated by the physical therapist for 8 weeks, but she was unable to successfully return to playing soccer. The patient was subsequently referred to an orthopaedic surgeon, who ordered a magnetic resonance arthrogram that did not reveal intra-articular pathology. To further evaluate bony morphology, computed tomography with 3-dimensional reconstructions was ordered, which demonstrated findings consistent with cam-type femoroacetabular impingement.
