What is an acetabular labrum tear?

ANSWER

An acetabular labrum tear can cause a wide variety of symptoms. Some people don't have any discomfort. Others have sharp pain around the groin, which may extend into the upper leg or buttocks.

Acetabular labral tears often cause a feeling of the leg "catching" or "clicking" in the hip socket as you move it. It may also feel like the leg is locking up.

Over time, the increased stress on the joint could lead to further deterioration and permanent damage.
