Nonoperative management of FAI can be attempted. However, it involves a change in lifestyle from active to less active and a commitment to maintaining hip strength. A good physical therapy program focusing on hip strengthening instead of stretching may be beneficial. Stretching associated with yoga and sometimes physical therapy may make the symptoms worse. Activity modification should involve avoiding activities that take the hip through extreme or full ranges of motion. Anti-inflammatory medications can also be attempted.
