If it works: You may help it. Here is some data from the Mayo Clin website. Treatments and drugs By Mayo Clinic Staff Treatment choices will depend on the severity of your symptoms. Some people recover with conservative treatments in a few weeks, while others may require arthroscopic surgery to repair or remove the torn portion of the labrum. Medications Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), such as ibuprofen (Advil, Motrin IB, others) and naproxen (Aleve), can relieve pain and reduce inflammation. Pain can also be controlled temporarily with an injection of corticosteroids into the joint. Therapy A physical therapist can teach you exercises to maximize hip range of motion and hip strength and stability. A physical therapist can also analyze the movements you perform that put stress on your hip joint and help you avoid these forces. Surgical and other procedures If conservative treatments don't relieve your symptoms, your doctor may recommend arthroscopic surgery — in which a fiber-optic camera and surgical tools are inserted via small incisions in your skin. Depending on the cause and extent of the tear, the surgeon may cut out and remove the torn piece of labrum or repair the torn tissue by sewing it back together.
