Acetabular labral tears were once thought to be an uncommon injury. With advancements in modern medicine such as improvements in imaging technologies and arthroscopy techniques, hip and groin pain associated with an ALT is less likely to be missed or go un-diagnosed. With the growing prevalence, it is important for athletic trainers and physical therapists to have a protocol to follow for rehabilitation. The purpose of our research was to investigate treatment strategies for surgically repaired acetabular labral tears, and to develop a exercise protocol for a young athlete from the acute phase of injury through return-to-sport. This will assist in the patient recovering his or her injury in a safe and efficient manner.3
