Labral Tears

The labrum is the attachment of the ligaments of the shoulder. The labrum can be torn from an injury, such as a shoulder dislocation. The labrum can also tear as the result of arthritis or wear over time.

Some labral tears need surgery, especially when they are associated with a shoulder dislocation. Minor tears can be treated with therapy and medications, or may not need treatment at all.

To learn more about labral tears and repair, the links below will provide you with more information from Dr. Frisella’s blog and YouTube Channel.
