What is Acetabular Labral tear ?

An acetabular labral tear is a tear or injury in the labrum of the hip joint. The labrum is a cartilage ring that lines the rim of the hip socket (acetabulum), which helps to hold the head of the femur (thigh bone) in place.


causes of acetabular labral tear:

  1. Repetitive hip movements: Repetitive motions such as twisting, pivoting, or squatting can put stress on the hip joint and lead to labral tears over time.
  2. Trauma: A direct blow to the hip or a fall onto the hip can cause labral tears. Athletes who participate in sports that involve sudden stops or changes in direction, such as soccer, hockey, or basketball, are at higher risk for hip injuries.
  3. Structural abnormalities: Some people may be born with structural abnormalities in the hip joint that can increase the risk of labral tears. These include femoroacetabular impingement (FAI), hip dysplasia, and hypermobility.
  4. Degeneration: As we age, the cartilage in our joints can wear down and become more prone to tears.
