What is femoral acetabular impingement pincer type?

The hip joint is made up of the ball (femoral head) and the socket of the hip. Pincer type impingement is a deformity in the socket (acetabulum), the ball (femoral head) hits on the rim of the socket causing hip/groin pain and limited range of motion. This can lead to arthritis.
