A labral tear describes an injury to the labrum, a ring of cartilage around the socket of the shoulder or hip joint. Labral tears are often the result of repetitive use from high impact sports or a one-time trauma. It is most common for physicians to treat a labral tear with nonsurgical techniques first, before turning to surgical options.
