I think you’re on the right track there. You need to mobilize the joint in ways that don’t provoke the bad pain. You’ll probably be able to identify the ranges that irritate or impinge the tear, and it’s not going to be productive to provoke that. But if you back off the range in the same direction of movement (to a point that doesn’t provoke pain), you might find you’re still able to improve your mobility in that direction.
Just be less aggressive, and become and expert on what your hips like and don’t like.
