Labrum Tear Recovery Without Surgery
It depends: Many people have degenerative rotator cuff tears as we mature. Non operative conservative treatment should be the first line of treatment. This often consists of NSAIDS, injection, and physical therapy. If conservative treatment fails, operative treatment may be warranted. Ask your orthopaedic surgeon for more details.

Revision rotator cuff surgery failed w/complete full-thickness infra tear w/1.5cm retraction.All 3 other tendon intact. Can get cuff tear arthropathy?
Frozen Shoulder: You are at high risk of developing a frozen shoulder if the revision of a full thickness tear of the conjoint tendon of the rotator cuff failed. I hope you are in physical therapy and have a set of low cost safe resistance bands at home to reduce impingement. By the way, the three main muscles of the rotator cuff are supraspinatus, infraspinatus and Teres minor. They insert via a common tendo ...Read more
8-9 months: An acl revision is seldom as simple as a first time acl reconstruction, so rehab would often be a bit more guarded. However, given good graft fixation, and a well-performed procedure, the expected recovery should be the same. Expect 6-12 weeks for return to daily activities and 8-9 months ideally before return to cutting sports. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
3 weeks post op shoulder surgery repair torn labrum & torn rotator cuff. Physical therapy started. Is popping and clicking normal after surgery?
Yes, don't worry.: Not all popping and clicking is a sign of trouble. In fact, because of the swelling that occurs after most shoulder surgeries, it is common. Remember to ice, do gentle range of motion exercises and begin early strengthening as directed by you surgeon and carried out by your physical therapist. In time, the noises will resolve as you recover. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

In due time...: I have my patients wear a brace until 6-9 weeks postop.

You should discuss specifics with your physical therapist/ surgeon as each protocol varies slightly. ...Read more

When is surgery needed for a labrum tear? And how long is recovery? (I tore it 3 months ago in my shoulder)
Not necessarily.: If you are referring to you shoulder, it would depend on your age, function, intended activities and extent. You should see an orthopedist with expertise in the shoulder for an opinion and perhaps a 2nd or 3rd opinion. If young and active and significant tear, most likely an intervention will be needed. For an older more sedentary person, it may be debatable as to need for surgery. Get opinon! ...Read moreSee 4 more doctor answers

Been in pain for 6 months.Much squatting and lifting.Tripped twice at work then dr said I had a labrum tear and need surgery based on MRI. Details?
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

My MRI said I have a "intrtasubstance tear of the glenoid labrum". Celebrex (celecoxib) did nothing for me. Do i need surgery?
Diagnosis?: Be careful about assuming that the MRI reading is the same as a diagnosis. If you are having shoulder pain that has not responded to conservative treatment, get a second opinion with a shoulder specialist to establish a diagnosis and cause of your shoulder pain before making the decision for any surgery. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cz-kdc7bhww&list=uu15uuhuqiy9zdpywwxf31jg&index=1. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

I am having a MRI today after having a scan on my right hip, the result was a 9 mm tear in the labrum, my dr said surgery but not arthroscopy, why?
