Low Back Pain Common with Hip Impingement

Examinations of 158 patients with femoroacetabular (hip) impingement revealed that three in five also suffer from clinically significant low back pain, and that increased disability in one location is associated with greater disability in the other. The findings suggest that clinicians should evaluate both the hip and low back pain of patients presenting with either complaint. Doctors of chiropractic are skilled in the evaluation and management of musculoskeletal conditions such as low back pain and hip impingement. PM&R, February 2021
