Gait Analysis of Femoroacetabular Impingement Patients
i. To compare differences in muscle recruitment, gait patterns (kinematics & kinetics), spaciotemporal variables, functional movements (squats, lunges, sit-to-stand, and single leg steps), and pelvic tilt between patients with femoroacetabular impingement (FAI) and age-matched morphologically normal controls. ii. To compare differences in muscle recruitment, gait patterns, spaciotemporal variables, functional movements, and pelvic tilt between symptomatic and asymptomatic patients with FAI morphology. iii. To compare changes in muscle recruitment, gait patterns, spaciotemporal variables, functional movements, and pelvic tilt pre- and post-intra-articular hip injection in symptomatic FAI patients. iv. To test if anatomical variables (alpha angle, center edge angle, FAI version) are predictors of change in gait and movement patterns.
Child to Adult
