I recently started working with Magenta and I couldn't be happier with my progress so far. Magenta is incredibly knowledgeable, patient, and caring. She took the time to thoroughly assess my condition and tailored her treatment plan to my specific needs (lower back pain). Her positive attitude and encouragement made the sessions enjoyable, even when the exercises were challenging. Thanks to Magenta, I have seen a significant improvement in my mobility and overall well-being. I highly recommend Magenta to anyone in need of physiotherapy services.

I have been very impressed with the therapy I’ve received by Magenta. She has helped with many of my pregnancy issues including lower back, neck and hip pain. She has a wealth of knowledge and is constantly up-skilling herself to ensure she has the most up to date practises. For me, she has used a combination of massage and giving me exercises to do at home. Not only that, but she has a wonderful disposition and is always happy to chat and see how I’m getting on. She has been there throughout my second and third trimester and I couldn’t be more grateful!
Thank god for Kurt and Kanvi. Without them I’d be in big trouble! Huge help with bad hip, back and neck pains. Highly recommended!

Highly recommend Magenta/Danielle! Incredibly knowledgeable, helpful and all-around lovely people. They gave me very helpful advice/support for strength and flexibility training, including deep tissue massages and acupuncture during the sessions. Without them, I would not have been able to recover from my IT band injury before my ultramarathon this summer.

I had a very positive experience working with Magenta on my rehabilitation following a tri-malleolar ankle fracture and surgery. It was a long and tricky recovery journey, but Magenta's professionalism, advice and positive attitude were extremely helpful in dealing with the whole thing. Thank you, Magenta and One Body LDN 🙂

I was on a week's business trip to London and had severe recurrence of slip disc induced sciatic pain in my left leg. In order to prep for the long return trip back to India the next day, I went for 1 session to One body LDN. Mridul, the physio, did a great job in understanding my problem, the pain areas and providing a deep tissue massage that helped me manage my pain during the return flight. Thanks Mridul and One body LDN!

Appendix: key terms and concepts for femoral acetabular impingement

Femoral acetabular impingement is a condition where the ball and socket joint of the hip rub against each other, causing pain and discomfort. It is commonly seen in young adults and athletes. Treatment involves identifying the source of the impingement and developing a plan to alleviate hip pain, correct the impingement, and preserve the structure and function of the hip joint. Surgery may be required in some cases to ‘clean’ or ‘sculpt’ the joint for a smoother fit. If left untreated, femoral acetabular impingement can lead to osteoarthritis of the hip.

Femoral acetabular impingement (FAI) is a condition that affects the hip joint and can cause pain in the groin area. It usually results from abnormal contact between the ball and socket of the hip joint, leading to damage of the cartilage and bone. Some common symptoms of FAI include stiffness in the thigh, hip, or groin, pain in the groin area after physical activity or prolonged sitting, and difficulty flexing the hip beyond a right angle. An accurate diagnosis of FAI is crucial to prevent further damage and potential osteoarthritis.

Femoral acetabular impingement is a condition where extra bone grows along the hip joint, causing pain and limited mobility. It can be diagnosed with the help of imaging tests like X-rays. An X-ray shows any irregularities in the shape of the ball or top of the thigh bone or excess bone around the rim of the socket. This helps in identifying any cam or pincer lesions which are visible on plain radiographs (X-ray). Once diagnosed, surgical correction may be needed to treat this impingement deformity for an excellent clinical result.

Femoral acetabular impingement (FAI) occurs when the ball and socket joint of the hip do not fit together properly, causing pain and discomfort. Arthroscopy is a minimally invasive surgery that can be used to repair the joint in young, athletic individuals. However, more severe cases may require open surgery for better visualization and exposure to perform the osteoplasty. Although open surgery has a longer recovery period due to extensive soft tissue dissection, hip arthroscopy is becoming a more common option with decreased surgical risks and complications for achieving the desired outcome.

Femoral Acetabular Impingement or FAI is a condition where the bones in the hip joint rub against each other, causing pain and discomfort. Arthroscopy is a minimally invasive procedure that can be used to diagnose and treat this condition. During arthroscopy, a small camera is inserted into the hip joint through a small incision. This allows the surgeon to see inside the joint and make repairs as necessary. Arthroscopy can provide excellent clinical results for young, athletic individuals with hip impingement. For more severe cases, open surgery may be required.

Femoral acetabular impingement (FAI) is a condition that occurs when the femoral head and acetabulum in the pelvis do not fit together perfectly. This can cause pain and discomfort in the hip area, especially during physical activity. Diagnosis of FAI involves a thorough examination of the hip and pelvis, including radiography. Treatment options depend on the severity of the condition, but initial non-operative measures are usually recommended. If conservative management fails, surgical intervention may be necessary. Orthopedic surgeons specialize in treating FAI and other hip conditions to improve patients’ quality of life.

Femoral acetabular impingement is a condition that affects the hip joint and causes pain, stiffness, and limited mobility. To diagnose this condition, doctors may use various imaging tests such as radiography, CT scan, and MRI. MRI is particularly useful as it produces a three-dimensional image including soft tissue cartilage and labrum. This helps in identifying potential labral or cartilage injury from impingement. At the Penn Hip Preservation Center, specialists use advanced imaging tests such as MRI and 3-D CT scans to explore all possible areas of impingement before developing a treatment plan to address the hip pain and preserve the structure and function of the hip joint for long term.

Femoral acetabular impingement is a condition where the ball and socket joint of the hip rub against each other, causing pain and discomfort. One treatment option for this condition is anti-inflammatory medication, primarily non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs. These medications can help reduce pain and inflammation in the affected area. However, if conservative treatments like medication and physical therapy do not relieve pain, surgery may be recommended. It is important to consult with a healthcare professional to determine the best course of treatment for individual cases of femoral acetabular impingement.

Femoral acetabular impingement, or hip impingement, is a condition that can lead to osteoarthritis and may require a hip replacement. The choice of treatment depends on various factors such as the amount of arthritis in the joint, age and activity level of the patient, and their preferences. In some cases, surgical repair followed by physical rehabilitation is enough to treat hip impingement. However, if severe arthritis is present or conservative treatment fails, then a hip replacement may be considered. It’s important to address both hip dysplasia and fai(cam lesions) for optimal outcomes.

Femoral acetabular impingement (FAI) is a condition that affects the hip joint. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is a valuable tool in diagnosing FAI and can provide detailed images of soft tissues, cartilage, and the labrum. It can also show any potential injuries caused by impingement. Other tests such as radiography and computed tomography scan may also be required to get a comprehensive view of the hip joint. Abnormal alpha angle measurements over 50 degrees indicate cam deformity, which is a common cause of FAI. Overall, MRI is an important diagnostic tool for detecting and treating FAI.

Femoral acetabular impingement (FAI) occurs when the bones of the hip joint do not fit together perfectly, causing friction and damage to the joint over time. This can lead to pain, limited mobility, and even osteoarthritis. FAI can be caused by extra bone in the hip or bone deformity, creating an abnormal shape of the ball or cup of the joint. The friction caused by this abnormal shape can also lead to wear and tear on the joint. It is important to seek medical attention if you are experiencing symptoms of FAI to prevent further damage to your hip joint.

Femoral acetabular impingement (FAI) is a condition where the ball and socket of the hip joint don’t fit together properly. Pincer impingement occurs when there is excessive coverage of the femoral head by the acetabulum, resulting in cartilage and labral damage. Cam impingement results from an abnormal shape of the neck of the femur bone, causing it to bump or impinge on the rim of the deep socket during hip flexion motion. Femoral osteochondroplasty and pincer osteochondroplasty are surgical procedures used to reshape or remove bone from the head and neck of the femur and remove excess cartilage from the hip socket, respectively. These procedures help to restore natural movement in patients with FAI.

Femoral acetabular impingement (FAI) is a condition where the bones of the hip joint do not fit together properly, causing damage to the articular cartilage. This can lead to pain and discomfort in the hip joint, as well as limited range of motion. Treatment for FAI typically involves surgery to correct the deformity and repair any damage to the articular cartilage. In some cases, microfracture may be used to stimulate new cartilage growth, but this may only result in fibrocartilage rather than true articular cartilage. It is important to address FAI early on to prevent further damage to the joint.

Femoral acetabular impingement, or FAI, is a condition where the ball joint of the hip rubs against the rim of the socket. This can lead to pain and discomfort in the hip area. One cause of FAI is slipped capital femoral epiphysis (SCFE), which is a separation of the ball from the thigh bone at the upper growing end (growth plate) of the bone in adolescents. SCFE occurs more commonly in children who are obese and can result in a prominent metaphysis anterior and laterally due to posterior and medial slip of epiphysis of femoral head. Other conditions that may cause hip impingement include Legg-Calve-Perthes disease, where the ball part of the hip joint doesn’t get enough blood causing bone to die.

Femoral acetabular impingement (FAI) is a hip condition that is caused by an abnormality in the anatomy of the hip joint. The etiology of FAI is still under investigation, but genetic factors may contribute to abnormal hip pathology. Single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) such as GDF5, FRZB, DIO2, and HOX9 have been identified in multiple studies as potential contributors to this condition. In addition to genetic factors, weakness in hip abductors and pain with hip flexion could indicate FAI or other intra-articular pathology. Various medical services are available for the diagnosis and treatment of FAI, including physiotherapy, private GP service, and pathology direct mental health support.

Femoral acetabular impingement, or FAI, is a condition that can cause hip pain and limited mobility. There are two types of impingement that can occur in FAI: ball and socket. The first type is caused by a deformity of the femoral head, which creates friction when the ball hits the edge of the cup. The second type occurs when the acetabulum is abnormally shaped. In addition to these two types, there are also three specific types of FAI: pincer, cam, and combined impingement. Cam-type impingement has been associated with an increased risk of hip osteoarthritis, while pincer-type impingement has not shown any correlation with this condition so far.

Hip impingement, also known as femoroacetabular impingement (FAI), is a condition characterized by abnormal contact between the ball and socket of the hip joint. This can lead to pain, limited range of motion, and damage to the surrounding structures. There are two main types of hip impingement: cam impingement, which occurs when there is an abnormality on the surface of the femoral head, and pincer impingement, which occurs when there is excessive coverage of the acetabulum. Hip impingement can be caused by a variety of factors, including genetics, structural abnormalities, and repetitive activities that place stress on the hip joint. Treatment options for hip impingement may include physical therapy, medication, and in some cases, surgery. It is important to seek medical attention if you suspect you may have hip impingement in order to receive an accurate diagnosis and appropriate treatment plan.

Femoral acetabular impingement (FAI) is a condition where there is abnormal contact between the hip ball and socket joint. It can be caused by structural abnormalities in the hip joint, such as excess bone growth or misalignment. These abnormalities can lead to pain and restricted movement in the hip joint.
