Anatomy of Labral Tear

A labral tear is a condition that affects the hips.

To get back to a pain-free life, find a spine specialist who knows how to deal with the different types of hip pain. Only a spine specialist can reach a correct diagnosis and deliver the most effective labral tear hip treatment. Call the Spine & Rehab Group before your pain becomes disabling.

What Is a Labral Tear?

A labral tear is an injury to the soft tissue in the ball-and-socket joint of the hip. The ball at the top of your femur or thigh bone fits into a socket called the acetabulum. The labrum is the soft tissue that allows the bone to move freely within the socket.

A tear can be triggered by a hip injury or by degeneration of the tissue. Hip pain may be a sign of a hip labral tear, or it may be a sign of another condition, such as:

What Are the Signs of a Labral Tear?

The symptoms of a labral tear resemble several other hip-related conditions, which is why you’re best served having a specialist make the diagnosis. Your pain is usually concentrated at the front of the hip, but it may extend to your thigh or buttocks. Symptoms you may experience from a labral tear include:

In some cases, a hip labral tear may be present with no symptoms, but you most likely experience a limited range of motion in your hip that makes everyday activities difficult. You may also feel like your hip is unstable or even giving way under you.

What Causes a Labral Tear?

Labral tears can affect people of any age because there are several possible causes. Some causes build up over time while other causes happen suddenly. You can suffer a labral tear due to:

Degenerative health conditions increase the risk of experiencing a labral tear. Cartilage protects the bones and decreases the friction in the joint. When you have arthritis, your cartilage wears down over time, making the labrum more prone to tearing.

What Are Labral Tear Hip Treatment Options?

Your spine doctor can diagnose a hip labral tear during a physical exam, which includes watching how well you’re able to move and finding out where you experience pain during movement. You may need to undergo imaging tests, including x-rays or an MRI to help your doctor confirm a diagnosis of a labral tear. Your Spine & Rehab physician always chooses interventional, non- or minimally invasive treatments first. Initial hip labral tear treatment may include:

If you have a severe tear or if these methods don’t relieve your pain, your doctor may consider surgery. Surgery to repair a torn labrum is usually done arthroscopically. It involves removing or repairing the torn piece of labrum, which can be effective to relieve pain and restore hip function.

patient TESTIMONIALS ★★★★★

I came to the spine and rehab group for my back and leg pain. I was able to get an appointment the same day I called. The staff was very friendly and courteous. The doctors were very knowledgeable and took time to explain what was causing my pain and answer all my questions. I felt comfortable having my procedure done in their state of the art surgery center, where the staff made you feel at ease. They are very easy to reach and available to answer all your questions.

The entire staff at The Spine & Rehab group is great. They are so helpful and kind. The doctors really take time to talk to their patients and answer any and all of the questions that I had. I've had office visits and procedures done and everyone to the front desk, to the nurses. and the doctors were just great and knowledgeable. They really got me feeling better as well. Since I starting going there my pain has improved greatly! I would recommend The Spine & Rehab Group to everyone!

I always recommend The Spine & Rehab Group to people dealing with pain, I even tell my other doctors what wonderful doctors they are.

Val B.

These days it’s hard to find a professional, yet extremely caring physicians office, particularly in the field of Pain Management. Dr. Hosny, Dr. Chu, physician’s assistant Summer and the entire staff have managed to make this happen. Robin helped me many times with insurance to ensure that I got my shots in a timely manner (Hi Robin!). I’ve been going to this office for about three years and I couldn’t be more pleased!


I went to Dr. Hosny with lower back pain. I spend many hours sitting in a truck for my job. After an hour or so I would get pain in my back. Since I am a truck driver, pain killers were not an option for me. After a few sessions with Dr. Hosny, I am pain free. The staff at New Jersey Pain Care Center and are wonderful and caring people. I would recommend anyone go to Dr. Hosny if they want real results.


I had gone to Dr. Hosny with severe back pain after spinal surgery. It was debilitating pain that stopped me from being able to function normally. Dr. Hosny suggested that I have a Spinal Cord Stimulator implanted in my back. It is the best thing I EVER did. I am so excited to be able to return to my normal life with no medication. My experience at the pain center was wonderful. The nurses were very understanding and kind.


I have had back surgeries that provided me no relief from my pain. After a few treatments with Dr. Hosny, I have almost no discomfort. I have no need for my pain medication anymore, and have been able to go back to working out and enjoying activities with my family. I was pleasantly surprised at the treatment I received at New Jersey Pain Care Center. The staff is very nice, and treats you with respect. The facility is clean, bright and everything is brand new.


I had been having pain in my neck for many years. I had been to other doctors and they all recommended that I have surgery. I was hesitant to get surgery, so I wanted one more opinion. I had a friend tell me about Dr. Hosny and New Jersey Pain Care Center. From the moment I met Dr. Hosny I knew he wasn’t your average doctor. He took the time to listen to my concerns about surgery, and he agreed. After my cervical radiofrequency, I have full range of motion back in my neck, and best of all, no pain.
