Where exactly are your symptoms? Are they only in the front and more towards the groin? Do you have any other symptoms in your low/mid back (tightness or stiffness) or any where else in your legs (even if they are different than the feelings in your hips)?
How would you describe the sensation of your primary symptoms (and if you have other symptoms too)? What makes your symptoms worse and what helps them?
Anytime someone mentions symptoms on both sides I wonder if the spine can be referring to those locations. There is something that is called Maignes syndrome were the thoracolumbar junction (area between thoracic and lumbar spine) can cause hip pain. I’ve treated a couple of cases of this where conservative management had failed when the hip was the primary focus.
I’ve also found that even if I am treating someone with FAI that manipulation to the the thoracolumbar junction can help with hip pain (there is some nerdy science behind this).
