I’d venture to say most people don’t even know what a labrum is. Maybe this lack of awareness exists because labral tears aren’t that common – this is what I used to think. Then I looked into it and what I found shocked me. I learned that they are, in fact, incredibly common in people with hip or groin pain.

Because they’re so common, it’s important to understand the difference between what’s normal, and what needs treatment.  We will also look at how to best treat hip labrum tears and also how to potentially prevent them…
