A hip labral tear is a tear of the cartilage that is located within the joint of the hip and is also know as an acetabular labrum tear. The labrum is similar to a rubber seal that exists to hold and stabilize the thigh one in the hip socket.  Those at high risk of obtaining a hip labral tear are those in sports and those born with abnormal structures of the hip.
