Glenoid Labrum Tear
(Shoulder Labral Tear)
If you have pain in your shoulder, you may have a torn labrum. That’s the thick band of tissue that goes around your shoulder socket. It helps make the socket deeper. It cushions the bone of your upper arm and keeps it from slipping.
You can tear your labrum if you get hit hard on your shoulder, or if you fall and try to catch yourself with your arm. You can also tear it if you pull or lift something that’s heavy. And, you can tear a labrum over time if you lift weights or play sports like baseball or tennis.
A torn labrum can be painful. It may hurt when you lift your arm high. You may notice that your shoulder grinds, pops, catches or locks up. It might feel unstable, and you might not be able to move it well. It may feel weak, and it may hurt even when you are resting.
Initial treatments include rest, medications and physical therapy. If those don’t help, you may need image guided injections. Dr. Ghalambor can create a care plan that is right for you. NorTex is here to help and the new Regenerative medicine options “Stem Cell” injections have shown promising results for treatment of frozen shoulder and it’s underlying cause (s) when combined with other therapies.
