Shoulder Labral Tear Treatment
What's the Best Option for You?
Labral tears are the most common source of shoulder pain, affecting up to 3 percent of the population. The good news is labral tears can usually be treated successfully and don’t typically lead to long-term damage. Physical therapy can help you get back on track in your daily life.
What Are The Symptoms of a Shoulder Labral Tear?
The main symptom of a shoulder labral tear is trouble lifting your arm. The pain will often get worse when you lift something heavy with your arm, such as carrying groceries or moving furniture.
If you have a labral tear in your shoulder, there’s an excellent chance you also have rotator cuff tendinitis, which means you’ll likely feel pain at night and when trying to sleep on your shoulder.
