Another reason that is now commonly identified for hip pain, particularly after injuries, is a so-called labral tear.
So the labrum is very similar to the cartilage in the knee. And cartilage tears in the knee have been around for many, many years, and people know about them and associate them with many injuries.
But it’s more commonly now known in the hip that you can injure the labrum, which is a piece of cartilage that extends all the way around the rim of the socket. So with an injury, be it a bad fall, or a car accident or any direct impact loading you can tear that labrum.
And now we have ways of diagnosing it and treating it and that can cause hip pain as well without having arthritis.
