Hip Labral Tear and Hip Rehab
A hip labral tear can be a challenging condition for an active individual or high-level athlete. The labrum is the cartilage ring that surrounds your hip socket. The labrum is usually injured as a result of a traumatic incident, such as a fall or contact with another person, although it can also be damaged over time due to wear and strain.
Patients with hip labrum injuries typically suffer deep groin discomfort, pain when jogging, and pain landing after leaping. Swelling, lower limb weakness, instability, and limited hip mobility are all symptoms of groin pain.
A hip labral tear does not necessarily necessitate surgery. Traditional treatment approaches include activity moderation, anti-inflammatory medication, corticosteroid injection, and surgery as a last resort in more severe instances. Furthermore, rehabilitation may be sufficient to get you healthier and avoid unpleasant and pricey surgery.
The average number of sessions for a total resolution of the condition at Elite Physiotherapy & Sports Injury Centre for physiotherapy treatment of a labral tear of the hip is between 5 and 8 visits. We have a team of excellent physiotherapists and sports injury specialists on staff that has dealt with similar injuries in the past. We treat your injury with a variety of conservative treatments, including-
- electrotherapy, hands-on manual therapy, an exercise program, a home care program, and so on.
PHYSIOTHERAPY TREATMENT OF HIP LABRAL TEAR INCLUDES:
The basic objective of labral tear treatment is to alleviate discomfort and strengthen everything around the hip in order to increase the hip’s capacity to function even with a labrum tear and give the rip time to heal.
Extracorporeal shock wave (ECSW), high-intensity class 4 laser, super inductive system (SIS), cryo-compression, cryo-air, targeted radiofrequency (TR-therapy), and a combination machine is all available at our physiotherapy clinic. These devices, among other things, are use to relieve pain, reduce inflammation and swelling, promote healing, and enhance hip mobility.
Our sports physiotherapist will utilize multiple manual mobilization techniques to-
- reduce your pain and inflammation, increase hip mobility, and re-establish the body’s true biomechanics.
Manual techniques such as- Cupping therapy, Dry needling, Soft tissue mobilization, etc.
Slant board exercises for a hip labral tear, raised lateral reach, barbell hip thrusts, banded reverse clams, hip abduction, high step-ups, standing resistant hip adduction/flexion/abduction/extension, and so forth.
Single-leg standing, balance board standing, proprioceptive training, and other balancing activities.
Home advice: Do not perform some movements without first contacting a doctor. Such as deep squats or deep lunges, which require you to raise your knee to your chest.
Once the tear has been stabilized, the pain has subsided, and muscle strength has been regained. Our sports physiotherapist will design a sports-specific rehab program that will include-
- agility training, plyometric exercises, Pilates, aerobic exercises, a cross-training program, sports drills, and so on.
