Abstract

When the diagnosis is given early, some athletes may benefit from a rehabilitation strategy that includes training modifications to protect the at-risk hip. When indicated, arthroscopic surgery can address the joint damage and correct the underlying impingement. Although the joint may not be normal, successful results with return to sports can often be expected.
