Makes you Think

"Computed Tomography Assessment of Hip Joints in Asymptomatic Individuals in Relation to Femoroacetabular Impingement"-Kang et al AJSM

The author CT scanned 50 people's hips from 15-40yrs. 39% of the joints had at least 1 predisposing factor for impingement syndrome; and the majority of the findings were bilateral. However, all were asymptomatic and will most likely stay that way.


- If the asymmetry is symmetrical to both hips does it cancel out?
- Might proximal or distal joint anomalies cause an individual to become symptomatic?
-Were their activity levels too low to create symptoms?
