"Labrum Tear is now Being Treated With Cell Therapy at the Center for Regenerative Medicine Using," according to Dr. A.J. Farshchian MD, medical director for the center for regenerative medicine.
Sports injuries need an adequate blood supply and cellular migration. Platelet-derived growth factors are critically involved in this process. These cells allow the body to take advantage of the normal healing pathways at a greatly accelerated rate. During the healing process, the body rushes many cells and cell-types to the injected area in order to accelerate the healing process. These cells perform many functions, including release of growth factors (GF) into the diseased or arthritic and injured sites.
The labrum is a fibrocartilaginous rim which attaches to the acetabulum cavity (This is where the hip joint is located). Its job is to protect the femur (or the hip bone) and decrease any unevenness in its surface. The labrum is important since it decreases stresses between the joint surfaces, by producing a "sealing effect". It acts as a bumper which deepens the joint socket and helps keep the head of femur in place.
The vascularity or blood flow is minimal which is not a good thing at all, this factor makes self healing hard to come by.
Although not very specific the FABRE test (see picture) could be positive in presence of a tear. Here the examiner is anchoring patient's ankle against the opposite knee and pressing on the knee reproducing pain and tenderness in the anterior hip (medical lingo: front).
MRI with contrast is a more specific test allowing the physician to actually visualize the tear.
The condition is painful and annoying since it interferes with activities, This entity may be a risk factor future arthritis and problems to follow. This condition is not common at all but the several times that I have seen it it has involved aggressive physical activity such as jumping on a trampoline or sports injury.
U.S.A. based physician, Dr. Farshchian is a medical author, humanitarian, and active republican member. He is best known for coining the term orthopedic regenerative medicine. Dr. Farshchian is recognized as a leading authority in the new clinical science of regenerative medicine. He is also a Television personality currently hosting "The Arthritis Show".
The Center for Regenerative Medicine in Miami, Florida concentrates on helping arthritic and injured people to get back to a functional level of life and their activities using non-surgical techniques and Orthopedic medicine. The center's expertise is in treatment of conditions of spine, knees , shoulders , and other cartilage damages. They have developed non-surgical and rehabilitation techniques focused on treatment and management of joint pain. Their team includes health professionals organized around a central theme. their website is http://www.arthritisusa.net
