We Treat Hip Labral Tears In Dublin, Ireland 

Labral tears of the hip can cause a lot of pain and discomfort, but they are not uncommon. In this blog post, we will discuss labral tears and how to treat them at Dublin Physio & Chiropractic. We also want to help you understand labral tear symptoms so that you know when to seek treatment from a professional.

Hip pain

What Causes Labral Tears Of The Hip?

A labral tear of the hip can develop for a few different reasons. Some common causes include:

  • Excessive stress on hips due to high-level athletics or repetitive motions (e.g., running, jumping).
  • Direct impact to the hip area that may cause labrum damage (e.g., car accident injuries).

When labral tears are due to high-level athletics that cause repetitive hip stress, the labrum may become damaged over time. This is because of how much stress this area experiences during certain movements and activities.

Symptoms Of Labral Tears 

One common symptom of a labral tear in your hip is groin pain. This may be accompanied by labral tear hip symptoms, such as:

  • Sharp or shooting pain in the hip area that worsens with certain activities (e.g., walking upstairs).
  • A “catching” sensation deep inside the hip during movement
  • Inability to extend your leg fully because of labrum pain
  • Hip labral tear symptoms get worse when you place your leg in certain positions (e.g., crossing one leg over the other).

To relieve symptoms of labral tears, our physiotherapists often prescribe exercises to reduce pain and inflammation and increase freedom of movement.

How We Treat Labral Tears In Dublin, Ireland 

At Dublin Physio & Chiropractic, our physiotherapists are dedicated to helping you reduce symptoms associated with labral tears and treat the tissue damage itself, promoting strong and healthy joints. We offer a comprehensive range of evidence-based treatments that can help with labral tear treatment in men and women – including laser therapy, spinal decompression, joint traction (manipulation), core strengthening, and manual therapy (spinal adjustments). All of our labral tear treatments are drug-free.

Physiotherapy is very effective for treating both short symptoms and promoting long-term resolution. Our physiotherapists use a combination of hands-on therapies and exercise to;

Labral Tear physiotherapy

Our Physiotherapies will work with you to design an individually tailored treatment plan that works for you. They are experts when it comes to joint problems, and they know what it takes to achieve the outcomes you want.

Laser Therapy 

Laser Therapy is a highly effective labral tear treatment that uses low-level laser therapy to help reduce labrum hip pain. Low-level lasers are used because they penetrate deep into the tissue, helping relieve labral tears symptoms quickly and efficiently by stimulating cell repair at a cellular level.

Joint Traction & Spinal Decompression

Spinal Decompression is an effective labral tear treatment option for patients suffering from labral hip pain. During this treatment, our physiotherapists use a decompression table to gradually and gently stretch out the spine and alleviate pressure on the discs between each vertebra. This labrum hip treatment can also help relieve labral tears symptoms by reducing excess pressure on your joints, increasing oxygen-rich blood to the damaged tissue, and promoting the body’s natural healing process.

Core Strengthening & Manipulation Treatment 

Most people do not use their core muscles correctly or at all. Our core has so many potential benefits when used correctly. Intrinsic core strengthening will activate your core muscles and help offload the demands and stress put on your joints that in turn are leading to pain, inflammation, and impeding you in your daily life.

Our strong core muscles can take a lot of the stress and demands put on our bodies. But for most people, the muscles can surround our joints and the somewhat vulnerable structures of our joints (such as the cartilage, ligaments, or bursas) take all the load.

For prevention of injury and pain, for optimal functioning and to truly function to bodies true potential, it is important to not only use the muscles that surround our joints but also to use our core muscles!

Spinal Adjustments

Chiropractic spinal adjustments work by freeing stiff joints in your neck, mid-back, or low-back that may be contributing to the development of joint conditions, like labral tears. When the joints of the neck, mid-back, or low-back may stiff that puts pressure on the important nerves that come from your spinal cord.

These nerves control how well your muscles work and how your joints move. So it is very important to relieve any pressure put on the nerves of your spine.
