I've been having a lot of him/glute pain. Ultimately diagnosed with a torn labrum and ischiofemoral impingement. After 12 weeks of PT, mainly focused on pelvic realignment, I don't notice much improvement. I've now been sidelined for 6 months. Anyone have any similar experiences or any advice? Really frustrated here.
I empathize with your frustration. When you like to work out, nothing is worse than not being able to do it.
Sometimes torn labrums require surgery. Has your doctor said anything about that?
I would post this on the main forum, as you'll reach a wider audience.

disclaimer: I am a PhD, not a medical doctor. The closest I get to surgery is topology.
I also have a torn labrum. 1st diagnosed in 2013, the thing that seemed to help me was unearthing a leg length discrepancy and shimming footwear to reduce it. At that time, injections of pain meds into my joint suggested my pain was not coming from the labrum so I did not pursue surgery.
Now... I see a surgeon on Monday. Things are much worse. :-\
If you have impingement I just don't see how that won't get worse w/o having the impingement corrected. My boyfriend had that surgery 1 year ago. His take on my hip pain was, "oh wow, you don't have an impingement? get the labrum fixed - that's easy." Removing the impingement is more work / damage / recovery. Still, he's happy he did it.
Good luck. And I 2nd tigerchik - many have posted about this on the main forum.

Had the same thing. My experience is PT does not help. I actually found out after stumbling back to my PT and surgeon the week after "running" Boston. While most surgeons do an open repair, I was fortunate to have a surgeon who is one of the few to do the repair arthroscopically. 4-6 weeks of no running or cycling and a lot of PT. It took about a year for me to get my running speed back. As both a surgeon and a patient, my recommendation is have it fixed surgically and be prepared for a long rehab period.
Thank you for your reply! Can you tell me a little more about your surgery and the recovery? I am worried about the impingement release and what the long-term consequences are of that. Thanks again.
