What is a Labral Tear?
The labrum is a rim of soft tissue called fibrocartilage that surrounds the hip socket (acetabulum). The labrum stabilizes the hip by deepening the socket and protects the joint surface. The labrum can tear from an injury, but is more often related to FAI (femoroacetabular impingement). The labrum can also tear because of osteoarthritis in the hip, as part of the degeneration of the joint. When this occurs, treatment is usually focused on treating the arthritic joint as a whole.
What are the Symptoms of Labral Tears?
Common symptoms of labral tears include:
- Pain in the groin or front of the hip during physical activity
- Pain during bending and rotation of the hip
- Feeling of clicking deep within the hip during certain activities
