Hi Jessica,

Thank you for the great question. They are actually different. The hip flexor is a muscle injury while the labrum is a cartilage injury. You can read more about the different hip injuries here http://gaortho.com/hip-injuries.

Did you have an injury or someone you know?

Usually an MRI can tell the difference although both are painful.

I hope this helps.

Thank you for your response to my question here. No one was injured here, but was only wondering more then anything else.
