Femoroacetabular Impingement (FAI): Management Techniques Using Postural Restoration: Part 2 [Article]

Femoroacetabular impingement (FAI) is recognised as an anatomical discrepancy between the proximal femur and the acetabulum, which may increase the risk of intra-articular hip pathology, including labral tears and contribute to the development of groin pain. In the first article in this series I explained the biomechanics of lumbo-pelvic-femoral dysfunction as it relates to femoroacetabular impingement (FAI) and as understood by the Postural Restoration Institute. In this second article I propose biomechanical mechanisms and rationale for both CAM and pincer types of FAI. In the third article I propose a method of managing FAI using Postural Restoration Techniques.
