I have a slap tear in my shoulder. Is it possible for the tear to heal on its own without a surgery or is surgery theonly way to go? Are there any long term effects?

I have a slap tear in my shoulder. Is it possible for the tear to heal on its own without a surgery or is surgery theonly way to go? Are there any long term effects?

Depends: Slap lesions don't heal on their own. There is good data to support that. Not all slap lesions need surgery. If you have no pain or other symptoms nothing needs to be done. If you have pain try physical therapy first. If that fails, you may need surgery to repair your labrum, or tenodese (cut and reimplant in a different location) your biceps tendon. Choice depends on age, activity level etc. ...Read more
