The labrum is a ring of fibrocartilage that covers the rim of the hip joint socket. Its purpose is to contribute to joint stability. A labral tear of the hip occurs when this crescent-shaped cartilage is torn, causing pain, clicking, or catching. Traumatic injury or erosion from repetitive motion are two common ways labrum tears happen. 

The symptoms of a hip labral tear can vary depending on the severity of the tear, but may include:

  • Pain in the hip or groin area
  • Clicking or catching sensation in the hip joint
  • Stiffness in the hip joint
  • Limited range of motion in the hip joint
  • Feeling of instability in the hip joint
Hip labral tears are commonly seen in athletes who participate in sports that involve repetitive twisting or pivoting motions, such as football, soccer, and ice hockey. However, they can also occur in individuals who have structural abnormalities in the hip joint or who have experienced a traumatic injury.

If you are experiencing symptoms of a hip labral tear, it is important to seek medical attention to determine the extent of the injury and receive appropriate treatment. 

Treating a labral tear is a priority for three reasons:
1) it prevents new symptoms,
2) it prevents possible long-term pain, and
3) it prevents a decrease in hip or shoulder activities.

Treatment options may include physical therapy, anti-inflammatory medication, stem cell and/or PRP treatments or in more severe cases, surgery to repair or remove the torn labrum.

Here at Miami Stem Cell, we’re recognized as a pioneer in stem cell procedures in the Miami area. Our staff of medical professionals has experienced excellent results from treatment for labrum tear pain with stem cell therapy, so you can be assured that you’ll be in good hands.

How can regenerative treatments help with Labrum tear and joint pain?

Regenerative medicine treatments, such as stem cell therapy and platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy, may offer relief from a labral tear in the hip by promoting the natural healing processes of the body and stimulating the repair and regeneration of damaged tissues.

Stem Cell Therapy

Stem cell therapy involves using stem cells, which have the potential to develop into different types of cells in the body, to regenerate damaged tissues in the hip joint. Stem cells can be harvested from the patient’s own body, often from fat tissue, and then injected directly into the hip joint to promote tissue repair and regeneration.

Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Therapy

PRP therapy involves using a concentrated solution of platelets, which are cells in the blood that help with healing and tissue repair, to promote the natural healing processes of the body. Platelets are harvested from the patient’s own blood, processed to concentrate them, and then injected into the hip joint to stimulate tissue repair and regeneration.

Both stem cell therapy and PRP therapy can potentially help with a labral tear in the hip by reducing inflammation and promoting the growth of new, healthy tissue. These treatments may be particularly beneficial for individuals with labral tears that are not responding to conservative treatments such as physical therapy and anti-inflammatory medication.

Choosing the right treatment for you


The decision to use platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy or stem cell treatment for a particular condition depends on several factors, including the location and severity of the injury, the underlying cause of the injury, and the patient’s overall health and medical history.

PRP therapy is typically used to treat soft tissue injuries, such as tendinitis and muscle strains. PRP therapy can be effective for mild to moderate injuries, and it is often used in conjunction with other treatments, such as physical therapy and anti-inflammatory medications.

Stem cell treatment, on the other hand, is typically used to treat more severe or chronic injuries, particularly those that involve damage to bone, cartilage, or other tissues. 

In some cases, both PRP therapy and stem cell treatment may be used together to maximize the benefits of regenerative medicine. 

Ultimately, the decision to use PRP therapy or stem cell treatment depends on the specific condition being treated, the severity of the injury, and the patient’s overall health and medical history. 

Our medical team has the right expertise in regenerative medicine and can help you to determine which treatment option is best suited for your condition.
