If I tear my AC in my shoulder, do I need surgery?

Rarely

Open-uri20120720-10603-u88a6x
Most AC injuries, commonly known as "shoulder separations", are treated very successfully without surgery. If there is a severe tear that results in significant pain, deformity or disfunction, then a surgery to repair or reconstruct the torn ligaments that hold the collar bone down can be done. There are even ways to do it with arthroscopic surgery.

Can you swim with swimmer's shoulder or a labral tear?

Depends

Rotator_cuff
Swimmer's shoulder encompasses a large variety of shoulder problems including labral tears, shoulder laxity (looseness), and partial rotator cuff tears. Depending on your competitive level and the stroke you are doing, your ability to swim may be greatly impaired or minimally impaired. The answer is highly variable and depends on your specific situation.

Could a tear in my labrum in my shoulder heal by itself?

No

Shoulder
The labrum is a structure that helps stabilize your shoulder joint as it attaches to the capsule and socket. Once torn, the fluid in your joint acts to prevent it from sticking back and the consensus is that they don't heal. The reasons to fix them are if it is associated w instability or if you have pain w/ +/- catching or mechanical symptoms. The tissue has poor blood supply.

Dr. David Trettin answered:

How is a labral tear in the shoulder with subluxation repaired?

Suture anchors

Open-uri20131116-31038-nwi84w
Most labral repairs w/ instability are repaired arthroscopically using suture anchors placed in the bone of the glenoid( socket) then passed through the labrum.(Some doctors prefer to do this in an open procedure.)the capsule( lining of joint)is usually tightened @ surgery w/ sutures depending on how loose the capsular tissue is.the"anchors" generally used are 'bioabsorable', the sutures are not.

If you have Rotator cuff tear, are you likely to get shoulder pain?

Shoulder pain

Extremity-joint-shoulder
rotator cuff tears are most often painful at the lateral shoulder area, but occasionally we find a complete tear which, while painless, prevents normal lifting and rotation of the arm. if I were betting, I would go for pain
