This nearly 2 hour workshop veteran hip and pelvic physical therapist and international lecturer and author, Dr. Ginger Garner will teach you how to identify the red flag symptoms of a hip labral tear or re-tear, and what to do for your best self-care if you are preparing for or trying to avoid surgery. Much of the physical therapy advice for managing hip labral tears is based on the misinformed idea you can "stretch" or "strengthen" your way out of the pain from a hip labral tear. 

The truth is - hip labral tears don't even necessarily cause pain. It's what happens to the structures AROUND the hip, pelvis, and low back after a tear that can cause excruciating, intractable pain. The kind of pain that hurts whether you sit, stand, or sleep. Kind of like the same pain you have with what Dr. Garner calls a "Snarky Psoas." 

This workshop will help you understand how to screen for hip labral tears, impingement, and how to identify the most common injuries that arise secondary to the tear. Dr. Garner will discuss lifestyle changes for self-care that can help you manage daily pain, such as best practices for sleep, sitting and standing mechanics, what exercises and movements hurt and which ones help, and how to vet physical therapists and surgeons to find the best one for you. 

You Will Learn: 

  • The red flags signs and symptoms of a hip labral tear OR re-tear

  • The key foundations for successful management of hip labral tears and impingement

  • Key elements for calming related muscles that tend to overfire when there is a hip labral tear (hello, Snarky Psoas for starters)

  • Optimizing sleep, sitting, and standing mechanics

  • Lifestyle considerations for managing pain and inflammation

  • How to vet physical therapists and surgeons to find the best one for you
