The main symptom of ischiofemoral impingement syndrome is hip pain. At first, the pain from this condition will be mild, but it gets worse and worse over time as the rubbing of the bones causes more damage, inflammation.
Ischiofemoral impingement syndrome can feel a lot like a pulled hamstring, but the pain is usually more local to the buttocks. Sometimes, you can feel pain in the hip or groin as well.
An ischiofemoral impingement happens when there is contact between the top of the thighbone (the femur) and the hip bone (the ischium). Usually, these two bones touch in a way that lets them move without pain, but trauma, overuse, and surgery can damage the bone.
Sometimes, this damage causes a piece of extra bone, called a bone spur, to grow on the hip or femur. This bone spur can start to rub on the femur and hip bones, causing more damage and making the condition worse.
