Signs And Symptoms Of Hip Labral Tear
Would the feeling of something being pinched in the upper thigh, on the front but close to inner thigh, in crease, be a symptom of hip labral tear?
I have some symptoms of a hip labral tear but the MRI came back normal. I have been doing therapy for 4 weeks now with no results. What do you think?
MRI results: Clinical symptoms are far more correct than MRI or x-ray results. Those studies may not always pick up an anatomical abnormality as often as one would think. If therapy is not doing it then maybe a visit back to an orthopedic specialist is indicated. He/she may recommend surgery to definitively get an answer to your symptoms. Read more

Some individuals with labral tears of the hip will also have clicking or a sense of catching deep within the hip during certain activities. Swelling is not a usual symptom. Your question did not say where the swelling is. Usually you can not see swe Read more

Dx of hip labral tear. Doing pt for 6 wks then MRA. What can I do for pain besides ice? Ice is helpful but it causes stiffness then pain.
Modify activities: For immediate pain relief besides icing, an over the counter anti-inflammatory medication (ibuprofen 600mg every 8 hours) or Tylenol (acetaminophen) (500mg every 6 hours) can be used. Another key to treating labrum tears without surgery is to modify certain activities. In general, trying to avoid deep hip flexion with significant hip rotation can help. Labrum tears usually become more painful when hip is flexed Read more
I have an anterosuperior hip labral tear, trochanteric bursitis and femoral anterversion. What does all of this mean?
Multiple things here: The labrum is the bumper around the edge of your hip socket. It can tear causing clicking and pain in the groin with hip rotation and loss if motion. This is fixed arthroscopically.

Hip labral tear, cant afford PT or MRA at the moment. I should be able in Aug. Could I wrap the injury to help pain while walking & continue dancing?
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. Read more
Nerve irritation or.: If you have these pains when you flex your hip and turn it in and out (internal and external rotation), then your labral teat itself is causing the pains more than likely.
