Am I the first?
80% of all FAI's are the product of an unstable, but not necessarily painful, lumbar spine.
FAI symptoms are caused by excessive hip movement which causes either the cam or pincer impingement. OS can shave as much as the bone back, but unless the underlying instability is identified and then corrected, having a painless post op hip doesn't mean that it's fixed.
It also doesn't mean that having an op will not be successful (very) if it's not tailored up with a good functional rehab program that doesn't just concentrate on hip mobility and strength. It must incorporate lumbar spine stability patterning.
