Hip Labral Tear
Diagnosis

A typical physical exam of a patient with a labral tear shows good overall range of motion, but pain with flexion and internal rotation of the hip. Radiographs will often show an abnormal bump on the femoral head, and an MRI is often useful in the diagnosis of a labral tear.
