Hip Labral Tear

Hip Labral Tear

Meg Gore

At the beginning of the pandemic, Spring 2020, the marathon that I had signed up for for Fall 2020, was cancelled. I decided to do what any rational runner would do, and train harder, faster, and longer than ever so that when races returned I would be ready to crush them all.

For many years, I suffered with groin and hip pain on my right side. I could not move my hip without experiencing very sharp pain and discomfort.

I saw two different doctors (gynecologist & general surgeon) for my issue, but neither of them could figure out why I was having so much pain.

Originally, from Sumiton, Alabama, I danced for 12 years with ShowStoppers Dance Company and then 6 years as a cheerleader. I cheered for my alma mater, Dora High School. Throughout my training, I was shown how to correctly stretch in order to be flexible.

In early January of 2019, I was getting up from the rug with my kiddos (I teach 2nd grade.) I got up awkwardly and heard a pop. Initially, this wasn’t unusual because I cheered and danced up until college so I was remotely used to hearing pops! Over the next couple of months, I would have random days that hurt more than usual but I didn’t think much about it.

As I was entering my senior year of high school, I started to experience some hip pain. I wasn’t sure what it was. I was never really an active child growing up. I didn’t realize my hip pain until I started working 9 hours shifts on the weekends and participating in gym class so I could graduate. My hip gradually started to click and catch. It would hurt so bad that I could barely walk on it.

 I’ve pretty much had issues with both my hips my whole life. I had my first hip surgery in 6th grade.

In 2010, I suffered a labral tear and continued to have problems with it ever since. I went to my local orthopaedic doctor for him to repair the torn labrum. In October 2017, I noticed my hip was acting up again, so I had another surgery to help repair the labral tear. I was in physical therapy for six weeks and I was still not feeling very good about my hip.

Brooke Ingram

Going into her sophomore year at Fort Payne High School, my daughter, Brooke, started experiencing really severe back and leg pain. Brooke, who is currently a member of the University of Montevallo Falcons softball team, always had problems with back and leg pain, but it started to severely affect her activity about 3 or 4 years ago.

Riley Nedrow

I have had hip problems for as long as I can remember. I'm a dancer, so pain and aches were normal and something I often ignored. But, at the beginning of my junior year of high school my left hip was really bothering me.

Jennifer Campbell

I am completely humbled and thankful to Dr. Benton Emblom and his team!

I signed up for a half ironman post op and set a goal while patiently awaiting recovery! I did it!!

A little over 6 months post-op I finished a 1.2 mile river swim, 56-mile bike and half marathon in 6 hours and 3 minutes! I had a great race! No hip pain during or after!

Eight months ago I didn't know if I'd ever be back where I was pre-injury but since then I have podiumed a sprint triathlon, ran a 23-minute 5k and finished a half ironman!

Brady Barnett

In September of 2013, I knew something was wrong with my hip. I could remember a possible time of the accident, but couldn't know for sure. After an MRI at my local hospital, we knew I needed more extensive tests and treatment.
