Hip pain is common in athletes, especially in sports like ice hockey.
Nonarthritic hip pain encompasses a variety of intra-articular diagnoses that are often seen in these athletes that are not related directly to osteoarthritis. These include dysplasia, bony changes, femoroacetabular impingement, labral tears, and more.
A recent clinical practice guideline on this topic was published in JOSPT to help guide us. In this episode, I talk to the lead author, Keelan Enseki, about the findings of the CPG.
Keelan works at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center, Rooney Center for Sports Medicine. He is currently the director of clinical practice innovation and administrative director of physical therapy residency programs. Keelan is also an adjunct professor at the University of Pittsburgh. These positions have him split time between clinical practice, teaching, research/writing, and clinical program design. His clinical interests revolve around nonoperative and postoperative care of individuals with hip region injuries. These interests are also represented through work with the Orthopaedic and Sports Physical Therapy Academies and the International Society of Hip Arthroscopy (ISHA).
