About Hip Labral Tears
A hip labral tear involves the ring of soft elastic tissue, called the labrum, that follows the outside rim of the socket of your hip joint. The labrum acts like a socket to hold the ball at the top of your thighbone (femur) in place. The cause of a hip labral tear may be related to sports injury, trauma, dislocation of the hip joint, repetitive motions, or degeneration. Additionally, some people are born with hip problems that can accelerate wear and tear of the joint and eventually cause a hip labral tear. The sudden twisting or pivoting motions common in golf or hockey can lead to joint wear and tear that ultimately results in a hip labral tear.
"Dr. Maniam is great and you took care of my knee. My knee feeks great and i can walk again. The visit was beautiful and they treat me with respect."- K.D. / Google / May 18, 2021
"On first arrival Dr. Kohler and his staff at Ospina Medicine were warm and welcoming. He was precise in his knowledge and explained all parts of both my pain management due to previous injury, and preventative measures for future treatment. Their New York City based state of the art technology and contemporary office made me feel at ease immediately. As someone with continual back pain, and as someone who wants to avoid opioid treatment, the very nature of Ospina Medical using non-opioid approaches to pain management for me was a big bonus. The results have been brilliant, and I am so pleased to have Dr. Kohler to help me through my pain management process."- M.M. / Google / May 17, 2021
"The nicest people, the best care. I feel so much better already. Would recommend to any and all friends, dancers, athletes, who are having pain."- C.J. / Google / May 14, 2021
"Dr Maniam and his staff are excellent. Renya at the front desk is always friendly and makes me feel comfortable. There’s a real sense that they care about their patients. I’ve had numerous spinal epidural‘s and radio frequency ablations, they’ve been painless and have gotten excellent results. This is the best pain management group that I’ve been to and I’ve been to more than a few... I highly recommend Ospina!"- M.G. / Google / May 14, 2021
"I've had 3 cortisone injections with Ospina and I'm amazed by the care they take when applying the injections. I can't believe how well it works and what good care they take of me. (I had received an injection somewhere else and it was more painful, bruised badly, and didn't last near as long.) I will ONLY go to Ospina now. The staff and doctors are truly WONDERFUL. Don't hesitate!"- P.G. / Google / Apr 30, 2021
Symptoms of Hip Labral Tears
Many hip labral tears cause no signs or symptoms. Occasionally, however, you may experience locking, clicking or catching sensation in your hip joint, pain in your hip or groin, stiffness or limited range of motion in your hip joint.
Treatment for Hip Labral Tears
Managing pain and stimulating healing of the hip labrum can be accomplished with minimally invasive interventional treatments in most cases. Procedural options for hip labral tears include cortisone injections that can help with pain from this condition but are not a good long term solution. At Ospina Medical we specialize in treating hip labral injuries with Regenexx Regenerative Medicine procedures such as platelet-rich plasma (PRP) and bone marrow concentrate containing stem cells. If there is a structural cause of the labral tear (such as femoracetabular impingment) then that condition should be addressed as well.
If you suffer from symptoms of a hip labral tear, schedule a consultation with our interventional and Regenexx regenerative medicine specialists at Ospina Medical in Midtown Manhattan in New York City today. We will create a personalized treatment plan to help treat your pain, improve your function and get you back to feeling your best.
