Hip Labral Tear

About Your Care and Condition

Persistent pain or stiffness in your hip can mean many things, including a labral tear. Damage to this soft rim of tissue can cause your hip to hurt, buckle or slip if untreated. Ask one of our hip or sports medicine experts. We'll find the cause and get you moving.

Hip labral tears occur when the cartilage (labrum) around the hip joint is injured. A tear is caused by repetitious movement, such as running, abnormal hip structure or hip dislocation. Pain and limited motion may persist for days. Depending on the extent of your tear, your path to a full recovery may include physical therapy or surgery.
