I am 74, and I was recently diagnosed with a hip labral tear. I have been treating myself with heat and cold packs along with a tens unit to massage my hip. I have recovered 95%. The only time I have pain in my hip is if I do a lot of walking during the day while shopping. I am seeing the doctor this week to discuss options, but I think I do not need surgery since I have improved so much in the last 4 weeks.
Hi @tnldaniel and welcome to Mayo Clinic Connect. I moved your post to a discussion about hip muscle repairs so you can connect with other members who have been through it. So glad you have found alternative ways to relieve the pain.
Did you do all this and recover in one month?
