Hip Labral Tears

The labrum is a piece of cartilage located on the outside rim of your hip joint that helps to keep the top of your thighbone positioned securely in the hip socket.

When this piece of tissue tears, typically as a result of a sports injury, you may or may not observe any symptoms. In some cases, however, you may notice a locking, clicking, or catching feeling during movement, or there may be pain or stiffness that limits your mobility.

Conservative methods, such as rest, physical therapy, and anti-inflammatory medications, can often provide sufficient healing and relief. If these minimally invasive options don’t help, we can perform minimally invasive surgery to help you return to normal activity.

At the Joint Preservation Center at Towson Orthopaedic Associates, we understand all patients have unique needs and deserve specialized treatment.

We work closely with each patient to create a personalized treatment plan to relieve pain, return function, and prevent future joint deterioration.
