Labral Tears (FAI)

Femoroacetabular impingement (FAI) or labral tears is a hip condition that, if left untreated, can cause damage to joints, limit pelvic movement, and ultimately cause patients pain.The pain stems from the femoral head not perfectly aligning with the acetabulum socket, which when rubbed together over a long period of time ends up ‘tearing’ the protective layer of labrum (cartilage that lines the socket).
