Check your neck: it wouldn't hurt to have a doctor examine your neck, as that is likely the source of your shoulder blade pain. Most times, the treatment is pretty straightforward. Heat, stretching, sometimes massage therapy or a short course of physical therapy can take care of the muscle spasm and pain.

Suture anchors: Your surgeon places small (usually about 3 mm) plastic or metal screws into the adjacent bone. These anchors have sutures threaded into them, which are then passed through the labrum, and tied to secure the labrum to the bone. This is done in similar ways for both the labrum in the shoulder and the labrum in the hip.

A few things...: Physical therapy is typically prescribed for progressive restoration of motion. Your doctor may offer you an injection into the shoulder to help control pain as well as to help make the joint capsule stretch more easily. If these efforts don't restore motion, sometimes a manipulation of the shoulder under anesthesia or a shoulder arthroscopy and capsule release are recommended to restore motion.
