How is Femoracetabular Impingement treated without surgery?
- Activity changes. Your doctor may first recommend simply changing your daily routine and avoiding activities that cause symptoms.
- Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medications. Drugs like ibuprofen can be provided in a prescription-strength form to help reduce pain and inflammation.
- Physical therapy. Specific exercises can improve the range of motion in your hip and strengthen the muscles that support the joint. This can relieve some stress on the injured labrum or cartilage.
