Suture anchors: Your surgeon places small (usually about 3 mm) plastic or metal screws into the adjacent bone.

Known hi grade partial distal supraspinatus tear poss labrum tear experiencing pain above scapula very tender to touch. What could it be?

Known hi grade partial distal supraspinatus tear poss labrum tear experiencing pain above scapula very tender to touch. What could it be?

Rotator cuff: High grade tears generally will not heal by themselves...And will often eventually lead to full thickness tears. Surgical treatment is likely to be eventually needed. There is no harm in trying conservative treatment such as pt, nsaids, cortisone injections, etc...Just realize that this will likely just delay the inevitable. Also, scapular pain may not be rotator cuff, but rather neck related. ...Read more

Got a posterior labrum tear 10 to 6 o'clock but full range of motion. Should I consider surgery?

Got a posterior labrum tear 10 to 6 o'clock but full range of motion. Should I consider surgery?

It depends: Your need for surgery depends on what prompted you to get the study that showed the tear. If you have full range of motion, full strength, good shoulder stability, and can do what you want to do with your arm, then the answer is no. If your shoulder shifts on you, and you cannot do things that you want to do because of it, then you should consider having it fixed. ...Read more

Could you offer specific rehab advice for a hip labrum tear? No surgery has or will be done :)

Could you offer specific rehab advice for a hip labrum tear? No surgery has or will be done :)

Depends on details: Hip labral tears occur because of 3 reasons: following traumatic partial dislocation, if there is femeroacetabular impingement (fai), or in young people, hyperlaxity with excessive motion. After trauma, a general hip strengthening program is best. In fai, the positions where the impingement occurs must be avoided. In hyperlaxity, extremes of motion are avoided and muscles are strengthened. ...Read more
