Unfortunately, EFI doesn't have specific exercises for labral tear. The goal of a labral hip repair is to regain normal hip flexion, range of motion and stability after surgery.
- Begin with light stretches and hip flexion exercises. A simple hip flexion test is administered periodically and should be part of a treatment plan. Lie on your back and raise your knee up to your chest as far as possible. Stop when you have a pinching or pain sensation.
- Several exercises, including squats and clam shell exercises are great for strengthening the gluteal muscles.
Squats may be done with a resistance band around the knees to engage the appropriate muscles.
- Lumbar stabilization exercises are an important step in full recovery, according to hiplabraltear.com.; weak back and core muscles must be strengthened to ensure a full recovery from labral hip tears and prevent recurrence. Bridges are one example of a common lumbar exercise. Please check this link for some lumbar strengthening exercises:
- Pool exercises allow you to work on range on motion and flexion without stressing the hip joint on land. Further, you can also simulate running in the pool which is an effective way of improving movement in the hip joint and receiving cardiovascular benefits.
