A common injury to your shoulder is called a torn shoulder labrum. The labrum is the cartilage that surrounds and protects the shoulder joint. This cartilage can tear due to repetitive overhead movements, a bad fall, or an accident.

When you have a torn shoulder labrum, you may experience:

Your treatment begins with a thorough evaluation of your shoulder. Your strength, flexibility, and range of motion will all be evaluated to determine the best course of treatment.

For minor labral tears, you may just need physical therapy and an exercise program to maintain muscle strength and balance. The goal of physical therapy is to strengthen other areas of your shoulder to relieve pressure on the torn labrum.

Surgery may be recommended if your labral tear is severe and if you play sports or activities which require full strength and range-of-motion of your shoulders. The goal of surgery is to reattach the torn labrum to provide full use of your shoulder.
