      I have a question about the youth problems + hip pain video.  The article that says this impingement leads to groin pain, labral tears, cartilage damage, and OA cites pistol-grip deformity as the cause of the impingement leading to those issues. It says 97% in one study and 100% in the other study were caused by pistol grip deformity.

      I have no understanding of pistol grip deformity or how we can accurately extrapolate information from the impingement leading to this type of structural damage unless we assess for this “pistol grip deformity” finding.

      I’m no expert in reading this stuff, but it seemed a relevant question to me?

        Pistol grip deformity is just an older and less specific term for a cam malformation. Don’t let the nomenclature distract you- any morphology problem will cause early OA and related degeneration of soft tissue and bone.
