Introduction: Femoroacetabular impingement syndrome is a common cause of hip-related pain in active young adults. It comprises a triad of imaging findings, symptoms and signs, and is usually characterised by extra bone formation at the femoral head-neck junction known as ‘cam morphology’. Cam morphology is theorised to create hip impingement in hip flexion activities, place stress on hip joint structures, and increase the risk of hip osteoarthritis over time.
