The article presents a study which evaluated the radiographs of college football players to quantify the prevalence of femoroacetabular impingement in asymptomatic athletes. It notes that prevalence of femoroacetabular impingement could be greater in athletes due to increase loading of the hips in sports. The study reveals that morphologic abnormalities with cam and pincer femoracetabular impingement are common on collegiate football players than in general population.
