Torn labrum healing: no simple answer. was the neck involved, and is all the shoulder pain from the labral tear or was there an impingement to the rotator cuff? this answer needs an orthopoedist or pmr eval with appropriate x rays and range of motion, hands on testing. 1: how is range of motion, 2:when/where is the pain. have you had a steroid shot or ulta sound? may not heal on its own, needing surgical care. ...Read more

I dislocated my shoulder over a year ago I have had three injections and 49 weeks of physical therapy... I still have pain and weakness help!?

I dislocated my shoulder over a year ago I have had three injections and 49 weeks of physical therapy... I still have pain and weakness help!?

Surgery: At age 23, the most common "lesion" is detachment of the anterior labrum, or a bankart tear. Less commonly, you can tear the ligament from its humeral insertion, called a hagl lesion. Mri arthrogram can help, but it sounds like you are going to require a shoulder arthroscopy. Rotator cuff tear, while possible, is less likely. Good luck! ...Read more
