Femoroacetabular Impingement Syndrome (FAI) is caused by abnormalities of the femur (ball) or acetabulum (socket). There are two types depending on which area is affected: Cam (Femoral head is not round) and Pincer (socket has increased coverage of the ball) or both may be present which is then termed a mixed deformity. More common in sports where the hip is flexed and internally rotated e.g. hockey, tennis, football and horse riding.
