Distal effects of Femoroacetabular Impingement (FAI)

Three dimensional gait analysis investigating hindfoot kinematics in patients with FAI

Until recently, femoroacetabular impingement (FAI) has been a poorly characterized and managed musculoskeletal condition of the hip. The authors of the current study set out to determine the effects, if any, that confirmed FAI will have on the biomechanics of the distal articulations of the lower extremity. It was shown that young adult men with cam-type FAI presented with excessively inverted hindfoot at heel strike with a reduction in the overall maximum eversion during stance phase.
