@DrDerekOchiai I had FAI/labral repair 8 weeks ago and I’m still having the same pain. I’m really bummed. I also have pain radiating from my outer hip to lateral shin and no one can figure out the cause or how to relieve it :(


Hip labral tears do not heal easily, so repair surgery may be necessary in many cases. The goal of surgery is to improve hip stability, function, and range-of-motion, decrease hip pain, and prevent additional damage to the hip joint.
