Your hips are made of a ball-and-socket joint formed by the connection of the acetabulum and the femur’s head. Normally, the femur’s head fits perfectly into the acetabulum socket, allowing smooth rotation and movement without any trouble.
However, there are times when extra bones or bone spurs suddenly form around the femoral head and/or along the acetabulum. As the bone overgrowth comes in contact with the normal bone, it might damage the tissues or tear the cartilage, causing a condition called femoroacetabular impingement.
