Hip Labral Tear Relief

A hip labral tear is a tear in the labrum of the hip joint, a band of soft connective tissue which helps to keep the head of the femur in place. Whether it’s an injury from work, playing sports, keeping fit or just getting older and not being in the shape we once were, CARESPACE Health+Wellness in Kitchener and Waterloo can help.

There are many causes of hip labral tears

Hip labral tears are a commonly occurring musculoskeletal injury which can be caused by any activity that puts force onto the hip joint including strenuous sports such as soccer, football, or hockey. Repetitive movement including squatting, bending, or twisting can also lead to a tear of the labrum. In addition to high impact activities, poor posture over an extended period of time can cause the muscles surrounding the hip joint to become strained and weaken resulting in a tear of the labrum. Seeking chiropractic care and physiotherapy along with massage therapy can help provide relief from pain and increase mobility while encouraging healing.

A hip labral tear is a painful, debilitating condition where the labrum around the socket of the hip joint has been torn or ripped. In some cases, a labral tear can occur from a traumatic event such as a fall or motor vehicle accident. But more often than not, it is due to repetitive strain over time combined with other conditions such as arthritis and bony irregularities in the joints. Hip labral tears can cause intense hip pain and limit mobility of the affected joint.

Hip labral tears can cause a variety of symptoms depending on the severity and type of tear. Common symptoms include pain in the hip, groin and thigh region, ranging from mild to severe. Aching, burning or popping sensations may also be experienced when a person stands for long periods of time or performs certain activities such as running or deep squatting. Additionally, it may be difficult to move with full range of motion and difficulty walking upstairs or downstairs is common. In extreme cases there may be an inability to bear weight on the affected side without experiencing sharp pain.

Treating a hip labral tear can help reduce pain and improve mobility. Depending on the severity of the injury, chiropractic adjustments and physiotherapy are common treatments that can be applied to restore range of motion. In some cases, chiropractors may use manipulation techniques to improve alignment and movement of the affected joint. Physiotherapy involves stretching and strengthening exercises to rehabilitate the injured hip muscles and tissues. Massage therapy can also be used to alleviate tightness in the surrounding muscles, helping reduce inflammation.

I cannot recommend Dr. Shannon Webster and Dr. Michael Torreiter enough. Both are super friendly and understanding and it has been an absolute pleasure to have met them and been treated by them.

I have been receiving treatment from Dr. Webster for a few months and I've been feeling much better. I had sever knee, shoulder and back pain. I couldn't squat or do push ups without my joints screaming at me. But now I'm not able to only do all those but also feel stronger. The most important piece is that she listened and took my history of many injuries into consideration. And as a dancer, I couldn't have asked for a better chiropractor who not only helped me feel better but also understood my needs.

I also brought my grandmother to Dr. Torreiter for her back pain for acupuncture. He was extremely kind, understanding, compassionate and everything that I could ask for. He made her feel comfortable and explained every step during each treatment. He made sure that she was well taken care of and also made other important referrals that lead to her recovery.

So far I have referred my whole family to these two wonderful individuals and everyone's experience has been equally great. Thanks to them we all are doing much better!
