Help needed: SLAP Tear/Labral tear in shoulder

anyone had this? It's common for weightlifters and wrestlers I've been told. If you did, did you have to get surgery?

Re: Help needed: SLAP Tear/Labral tear in shoulder

I'm a silverback, and I currently have a 28 yr old injury. 20% rotator cuff tear and a slap tear (same shoulder). Currently I am going through PT and I'm already seeing results. Ortho said that it will be up to me if I want surgery and asked me to kill it at PT for a few months before making that decision.

PT said only thing he doesn't want me doing it going heavy on OH squats and snatches.

Good luck to you!!

Re: Help needed: SLAP Tear/Labral tear in shoulder

Hey Michael. I have a SLAP tear in both shoulders, L>R. They're pretty old (about 8 yearsish). This year, the left one was becoming very problematic with all overhead movements, so I had a single PRP injection into the joint space, and prolotherapy to all the rotator cuff tendons. I'm about 95% pain free now. The other thing I really have been focusing on is mobilizing the surrounding structures in my pecs, lats, traps, and t spine (and shoulders, obviously).

I'm not going to have surgery unless I can't use my arms. At my age, the success rate is poor, and any time someone mucks with normal anatomical arrangements, my eyebrows raise. It just doesn't seem like an idea that's going to give me any sort of longevity.

Hope this helps.

I had a right shoulder SLAP tear a few years ago mate. See the attached thread. It covers my journey from pre op all the way through to my 100% recovery 18 months post op.
