Hip Labral Tear
Signs and Symptoms

Patients with labral tears often have a long history of vague groin pain or pain in the front of the hip, accentuated by certain movements, such as hip flexion and rotation. Some patients feel pain after sitting for long periods or with sports and other physical activities. Patients may also have a history of catching and popping sensations in the hip.
