Hip Labrum Tear
The hip labrum is a little piece of cartilage within the hip joint that allows the ball and socket joint to fit together better. Without this piece of cartilage, the hip joint would be unstable and more susceptible injury and arthritis. Injury can occur within this piece of cartilage most commonly due to trauma to the hip joint, repetitive use of the hip joint, or structural abnormalities around this joint. Injury to the hip labrum can cause the hip to be more susceptible to arthritis.
Common symptoms of a hip labrum tear are sharp pain located inside the hip joint, clicking and catching sensations when moving the hip joint, and decreased range of motion of the hip joint.
The Chiropractors at Mountainview Chiropractic Center will assess the hip area as well as the surrounding structures to determine the appropriate treatment protocol for the patient.
The practitioners treat patients with a hip labrum tear by:
- Chiropractic adjustments to restore normal joint motion
- Myofascial release to release adhesions in damaged tissue and take stress off the hip joint
- Rehabilitation exercises to strengthen the glute muscles
- Discussing the possibility of surgical intervention
