Hip Conditions - Labral Tears of the Hip

This condition is a tearing of the labrum – a thick cuff of fibrous tissue that lines the hip socket. The labrum cushions the joint and provides a smooth surface for the head of the femur to glide within the socket, so a torn labrum can interfere with the normal motion of the hip joint. Physical activity, repetitive motions, trauma or diseases that injure the bone or cartilage of the hip joint typically cause this. FAI is the most common cause of labral tears of the hip.

Minor tears may cause no symptoms, but some can cause locking or catching sensations in the joint during movement. Treatment options may include physical therapy, corticosteroid medications or injections, and arthroscopic surgery.
