What is Hip and Shoulder Labral Tear?

Shoulder labral tears can result from a variety of activities or events. Most often the labrum is torn secondarily to a dislocation or some form of trauma like a fall while skiing or sudden impact while playing sports. When the shoulder dislocates, excessive stress is usually directed to the labrum, causing it to tear.


The labrum is a fibrocartilage rim that surrounds the hip joint and gives it stability. This type of cartilage seals the joint, deepens the socket and protects the joint by decreasing the forces transmitted to the joint. A tear to the labrum can cause pain in the front of the hip, in the groin or side of the hip. The pain usually worsens with walking, pivoting or impact activities such as running. The pain also occurs at night and can be associated with clicking, catching or locking.


Common Hip and Shoulder Labral Tear Symptoms

Below is a short list of symptoms that patients experience when they are diagnosed with hip and shoulder labral tear injuries:

  • Loss of strength
  • Decreased range of motion
  • Instability in the shoulder
  • Pain when moving your arm
  • Stiffness while moving your hip
  • A feeling of locking when your hip is in motion
  • Deep groin pain or pain in the buttocks (on the side of the injured hip)


About Our Hip and Shoulder Labral Tear Solutions

Fortunately, not all labral tears require surgery. A combination of relative rest (avoiding activities that cause pain), anti-inflammatory medicines and a focused course of physical therapy are the first choice for the treatment of a labral tear. Many times, the pain, mechanical symptoms (popping, clicking, locking) and decreased mobility improve with these measures and the athlete is able to return to sport.


The physical therapy protocol is very specific to the individual and addresses the biomechanical faults that placed the hip at risk for a labral tear in the first place. It is very important for the athlete to address these issues to avoid re-injury.
