Hip Labral Tears

Labrum is a ring of strong fibrocartilaginous tissue lining around the socket of the hip joint. Labral tear may be caused by trauma, femoroacetabular impingement (FAI), hip hypermobility, dysplasia, and degeneration. It is one of the rare conditions and is common in athletes playing sports such as ice hockey, soccer, golf and ballet. Structural abnormalities may also cause hip labral tear.
