The number of hip arthroscopies being performed each year is increasing exponentially as the diagnosis of FAI and labral tears becomes more commonplace in orthopedic surgery practice. If history has taught us anything, it’s that pathoanatomical findings should not be driving the need for surgery. The literature suggests that many individuals have FAI and or labral tears and are asymptomatic. Once a hip labral tear becomes symptomatic, what is our role in diagnosis and treatment? Why do some hips become painful and others don’t? This presentation aims to highlight the current evidence on conservative management for hip labral pathology, to discuss what constitutes “conservative care,” and to foster a discussion on the role we play in managing this prevalent condition.
