Hey Johnny, Thank you for the great leads and response. I reread my previous reply and I will try to not rehash my past overlooks and dead ends.
Your condition is simmilar to mine. My left side UCLA radiologist report says:
" There is a slight tear with slight detachment of the posterosuperior labrum. the rest of the labrum is within normal limits. The visualized osseous structures demonstrate normal signal, There are osteophytes along the medial femoral head as well as an osseous bump on the anterior femoral neck. The alpha angle is slightly increaded, measuring appro. 60. A 3mm focal area of cartilage loss is identified in the superior acetablum. The visualized mucle structures of the hip are normal in appearance.
1. posterosuperior labral tear.
2. Mild osteoarthritis.
3. Osseous bump arising from the anterior femoral neck with increased angle.FMI is a possibility."
another page reads:
"1. Findings of bilateral ephyseal overgrowth and femoral head asphericity may predispose the patient to femoroacetabular impingement.
2. Mature ossification at the left inferior and anterior iliac spine likely due to and old rectus femoris tug tension."
Thanks Johnny for the FMI website. Very interesting. It seems that stretching is out. I totally agree on this one and I'll miss it. -stretching definately inflames this impingement. Unfortunately they mention an unactive lifestyle is the likely consequence. More of the ice everynight after work. Yuk.
This leads to sh in germany option. I think i will email this report to them. They have allready e-mailed me back wanting more info. I will reread alot of your previous input and see how your impingemnt treatment and eventual soft tissue repair tie in. I look forward to your take. Good healing to you as well!THANKS
