WHAT IS HIP IMPINGEMENT?
Hip impingement is a general term to describe the conditions of femoroacetabular impingement, hip labrum tears, and cam & pincer impingement. Stated simply, it is a painful condition where joint connecting the bones of the thigh and hip becomes irritated and causes pain with sports and daily life. This pain is often severe and unfortunately, few in the medical world are skilled in providing high quality care for individuals suffering from hip impingement, so they suffer for years before finding relief.
At Onward Greenville, we specialize in providing relief to those dealing with chronic hip impingement and would love the opportunity to help those wanting to regain their freedom of movement without surgeries, injections, or wasting time with ineffective treatments.
Don’t just take our word for it
“I came to Dr. Gingerich with hip pain that started seemingly out of the blue. It made walking, sitting, getting up, and working out painful. As a weightlifter who goes to the gym 6 days a week, not working out was taking a toll on me, and also not helping my pain. Dr. Gingerich worked with me to figure out the cause of the pain and exercises that I could do to strengthen my body and the surrounding muscles. Not only did she work with me to help my discomfort, but she made me feel confident going back to the gym. She gave me the tools that I needed to get stronger and fix my pain, while not limiting my movement. A year later, I’m pain free and much stronger than I was when I first came to her!” – Nina T.
