Stem Cell Therapy for Glenoid Labrum Tear and Degeneration
Stem cell therapy for glenoid labrum tears or degeneration are effective non-surgical treatment methods for this and other shoulder conditions. The glenoid is the cup of the shoulder joint, and the labrum is the cartilage that rims its edge. The labrum seals and stabilizes the shoulder joint. Also known as a superior labral tear from anterior to posterior or SLAP tear, glenoid labrum tear and degeneration can be a source of pain and frustration.
In younger people, a glenoid labrum tear can be caused by jamming the shoulder, often during an overhead athletic exercise, such as swimming or pitching. Older people, however, experience glenoid labrum tear and degeneration caused by repetitive use or arthritis.
Those who experience glenoid labrum tear and degeneration report pain, especially when reaching overhead or across the body and a feeling that the shoulder "slips around" or dislocates. Some also report loss of strength, and athletes may experience decreased velocity when throwing.
Traditional treatment options
Traditional treatment for glenoid labrum tear and degeneration starts with rest and avoidance of activities that aggravate the condition; over-the-counter or prescription medications for pain; physical therapy. However, most glenoid labrum tear and degeneration is resolved with open or arthroscopic surgery.
Why stem cell therapy is a better alternative?
Stem cell treatments offered by Florida Regenerative Medicine may be a less invasive method than surgery to treat glenoid labrum tear and degeneration because the body uses its own stem cells and platelet rich therapy to rebuild damaged tissue. The stem cell procedure utilizes the patients own concentrated stem cells and is performed in an office setting under local anesthsia.
