Labral tear . Agree that recovery is easier with hip replacement....But that doesn't mean you are a good candidate for it. You are very young, & shouldn't consider joint replacement unless/until you have exhausted all conservative treatment. Also, do you have severe arthritis in the hip joint? A labral tear alone is not a good reason to have a replacement. Read more...

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 there is a hip labral tear, will the body spasmodically shift/twist pelvi/torso to protect hip joint even though there is no pain?
