Labral Tear Rehab

  • Creator
  • #44870

    Hi all,

    Hope you’re well admist everything going on! 3 weeks ago I had surgery to repair a torn labral in my right hip. Doctor says I should be back to jogging in about 3 months and back to climbing in about 6 (fingers crossed!). I started PT last week, working on some basic mobility/stretching. I hope to climb Denali next early summer, June 20th.

    My questions are
    1. Is there anything I should or shouldn’t be doing to ensure a healthy recovery?
    2. Am I setting my sights too high to be fit enough for Denali next year?

    Thank you!

    I had hip labral tear repair (and polishing of the femoral head and “rim trim” on the socket) in mid 2018 and I ran the Pikes Peak Ascent 14 months later, and I just did the full Pikes Peak Marathon 3 weeks ago.

    Everyone’s recovery is different however, but if you do it right then I’d say it should be a possibility. Just remember that recovery isn’t linear, you’re going to have setbacks along the way but that doesn’t mean the whole process was a failure.

    Glad to offer any other advice on my experience.

    Listen to your bodies true response, don’t have a story in your head about what SHOULD happen. Work the progressions, but adapt to how you respond.
