The physical therapist told my husband that he might have a torn labrum.
Q. Dear Terry, “The physical therapist told my husband that he might have a torn labrum, but he's not sure. What is a labrum? Do you have any recommendations?” — M.S., Roanoke, VA
A. Dear M.S., A labrum refers to a ring of fibrous cartilage around the edge of the joint surface of a bone. Damage (i.e., a tear) is often caused by a direct injury or from the normal wear and tear of activity.
I am glad to say I do have some options that may help with the healing process. However, I would encourage your husband to talk with his doctor to see what they think.
Your husband should consider taking highly absorbable curcumin, boswellia, DLPA and nattokinase to address any pain he is experiencing. Each ingredient works in a slightly different manner to get him comfortable as quickly as possible. I advise taking these four ingredients three times daily.
To further assist in the repair process, I prefer active forms of vitamins B6 and B12, along with magnesium, manganese, bromelain, zinc, vitamin C, niacinamide, and boswellia. One of the most crucial ingredients is manganese. You need at least 36 mg of manganese to have an impact, so make sure the dosing of this critical mineral is adequate. I recommend taking these ingredients twice daily.
