Treat Your Torn Shoulder Labrum Without Surgery

Your shoulder labrum is an important rubbery cartilage that lines the “cup” of your shoulder – AKA the shoulder socket. It helps keep the arm attached to your shoulder, and is super important for the stability of your shoulder joint.

Tearing the labrum can cause pain, decreased shoulder movement, weakness, and instability of the shoulder joint. Surgeries are often done if there is a big tear or if some structures around the labrum snap off, but often don’t do anything to improve the stability and strength of the shoulder. That’s why we at Orthobiologics Associates created our non-surgery and non-drug alternative for shoulder labrum tears!
