Hip Conditions

Hip Labral Tear

Hip labral tears occur when the ring of cartilage surrounding the hip (called the labrum) becomes separated from the socket. It is most commonly the result of repetitive trauma, such as running or constant twisting motions Hip labral tears can also be caused by direct trauma to the hip.

In some cases, surgical intervention may be required. Physical therapy will continue to be essential to your recovery in cases with or without surgery.

Symptoms include:

  • A deep ache at the front of your groin
  • Clicking or catching with hip movements
  • Increased pain with activity
  • Weakness and stiffness in the hip

At Apex, your physical therapist will perform an evaluation of the joint and work with you to create a plan of care that best suits your needs and goals.
