FEMORAL ACETABULAR IMPINGEMENT: (Morphology Does NOT Equal Pathology)
Some people claim that FAI bone shapes (cam, pincer, mixed) are an important risk factor for hip osteoarthritis. They say that early, aggressive treatment is needed to prevent long-term complications.
The result is more young patients undergoing "corrective" surgery...
...but does the science support these claims?
This video look at an article that critically reviews these claims by looking at the scientific evidence that defends (or refutes) them, according to David A. Rubin, M.D., a highly accomplished musculoskeletal radiologist.
🧐Specifically, in this video you will learn:
- Why "bad bone shapes" do NOT mean "big hip problems"
- How can a practical approach to bones/hip impingement help?
- The "frightening" issue for young adults with X-rays & MRI's
- How Shane's "bad bones" (and labral damage + cyst) affect him
- Why "surgery" is the last option for treatment (but not always BAD)
- What David Rubin (Radiologist) thinks about FAI (hip impingement)
- FAI bone shape vs FAI syndrome (What a scientific study says...)
Enjoy the video!
