Ligamentum Teres Tear

Ligamentum Teres Tear What is a Ligamentum Teres Tear?
The ligamentum teres is a ligament located deep in the hip joint. It connects the ball (femoral head) to the socket (acetabulum) and provides blood supply to the femoral head. It is also important for stability. Numerous nerve fibres run through the ligamentum teres and injuries to this ligament result in severe hip pain.

Ligamentum teres tears are notoriously difficult to diagnose. Most patients will have had multiple investigations performed before the diagnosis is made or suspected.

Trochanteric Bursitis

Trochanteric Bursitis
What is Trochanteric Bursitis?
Trochanteric bursitis is inflammation of the bursa (ie. a fluid-filled sac that overlies joints or bony prominences) at the outermost (i.e., lateral) point of the hip known as the greater trochanter. When this bursa becomes inflamed or irritated, it causes pain on the side of the hip. It is a common cause of hip pain, also known as greater trochanteric pain syndrome. A well-trained doctor or other paramedical professional will suspect trochanteric bursitis based on your symptoms and a thorough examination of your hip. The diagnosis will often be confirmed by additional tests such as ultrasounds and MRIs.

Cam Impingement

Cam Impingement What is cam type Femoroacetabular Impingement (FAI)?
Femoroacetabular Impingement (FAI) is ‘impingement’ or abnormal contact between the ball (femoral head) and socket (acetabulum) of the hip joint. The cam lesion (or femoral neck ‘bump’) refers to the abnormally-shaped femoral head, which comes into abnormal contact with the edge of the hip socket, thus limiting the range of movement in the hip. This contact frequently results in damage (or tears) to the cartilage along the rim of the socket (i.e., the labrum) or to the cartilage lining the socket (i.e., the articular cartilage). Tears of the hip ligament (i.e., ligamentum teres) may also result.

Pincer Impingement

Pincer Impingement
What is a pincer type Femoroacetabular Impingement (FAI)?
Femoroacetabular Impingement (FAI) is ‘impingement’ or abnormal contact between the ball (femoral head) and socket (acetabulum) of the hip joint. The pincer lesion refers to the abnormally-shaped socket that excessively covers the femoral head, thus limiting the range of movement in the hip. When the femoral neck comes into abnormal contact (‘impinges’) with the edge of the hip socket, damage (or tears) to the cartilage along the rim of the socket (i.e., the labrum) or to the cartilage lining the socket (i.e., the articular cartilage) can result.

Psoas Tendinopathy

Psoas Tendinopathy What is psoas tendinopathy?
Psoas tendinopathy (or tendinitis) is inflammation and/or partial tearing of the psoas tendon, which is located deep in the hip joint, attached to the lesser trochanter (a small bony prominence next to the hip). The psoas is a very important hip flexor. When this tendon becomes inflamed or irritated, it causes pain in the hip, which is usually felt in the groin or inner thigh. The psoas can also become inflamed following a total hip replacement.

A well-trained doctor or other paramedical professional will suspect psoas tendinopathy based on your symptoms and a thorough examination of your hip. Resisted hip flexion and straight leg raise will often reproduce the pain.
