Patients with groin pain can often have an underlying condition caused by an abutment in the hip joint (known as femero-acetabular impingement) during normal movement such as sitting, walking, running, or twisting.
The abutment can often occur due to the prominent bone on the acetabulum (socket of the hip joint) and or the femur.
The pain often fluctuates in intensity and can be aggravated by activity.
The pain can also radiate to the buttock region and or thigh. In some individuals, damage (such as labral tears and or cartilage damage) can occur to the hip joint that can ultimately lead to premature arthritis.
