What are the symptoms of hip impingement?

ANSWER

You can have hip impingement for years and not know it, because it's often not painful in its early stages.

When hip impingement causes symptoms, they can include stiffness in your groin or front of your thigh or a loss of your hip's full range of motion.

As the condition gets worse, you may feel pain with things like sitting for a long time or walking up a hill.
