Signs and Symptoms

People with FAI often have a long history of pain in the groin or front of the hip, which may become sharp with certain motions, especially hip flexion (moving the thigh toward the chest) and hip rotation. Some people have pain after sitting for long periods or when participating in sports and other physical activities.
