Yes, In Time: Regardless of the tissue repaired, primary healing takes 3 months and we recommend avoiding any stressful activities that may compromise the healing process (including aggressive pt). Strengthening can start after 3 months and depending on the level of activity the ultimate return can vary. Learn more here: http://www.Theshouldercenter.Com/labrum-tear-slap-lesion.Htm.
