AVOID TAKING A SWING AT HIP IMPINGEMENT THIS SUMMER
Hip impingement is a common condition for baseball and softball players because they can put a lot of torque on their hips while swinging at pitches. It can also affect golfers, tennis players and other athletes who rely on their hips as a source of power and stability.
What is Hip Impingement?
In a medical sense, hip impingement happens when there is abnormal contact between the ball of the thigh bone and the hip socket. Sometimes, it is a condition based on how the bones form. In other cases it develops as a result of damage to the joint.
With hip impingement, you may feel pain at the hip. It can also be felt in the groin muscles, lower back, buttocks or other parts of the upper leg as various joints and muscle groups have to work together to make up for the hip not functioning efficiently.
