Hip impingement is now recognized as a relatively common cause for hip pain in young adults. The early evolution of impingement begins in childhood in several common hip disorders (slipped capital femoral epiphysis, Perthes, early avascular necrosis due to other causes). Recognition and treatment of childhood impingement may prevent the evolution to early hip arthritis.
