FAI (Femoro-acetabular Impingement) & Karate

My personal experience with FAI and what you should know about this condition

uh oh…

My right (non-artificial) hip has been giving me problems lately. I lost my day job about 6 weeks ago and have been making use of the time, adding some cross-training in kick-boxing, more weight-training, etc. I think this has greatly accelerated the further deterioration of my hip condition. My artificial side is feeling good. But I’m afraid I will have to replace the other side sooner than previously anticipated. I’m getting some pretty horrible sounding grinding sounds and intermittent pain. It’s not terribly painful. But I am definitely feeling some discomfort these days.
