Torn Labrum In Shoulder Recovery Time
Depends: It depends on which part of the labrum is affected and your activity level. Most labral tears are degenerative and causes intermittent pain. If you do a lot of overhead activity, such as a throwing athlete, then you can have more pain and may require surgery. Either way, you should have your orthopedist or sport medicine specialist help you determine your best treatment option. ...Read more

Pain and nausea: Severe pain has been associated with nausea at times, but localized shoulder pain typically does not do this.

Need more info: If you did not have surgery then the labrum is still torn. This does not necessarily mean that you have to have surgery. Labral tears vary in size, location and associated symptoms. Often degenerative tears are treated conservatively, without surgery, and patients do quite well. Your orthopedist/ sports medicine physician can help you make this assessment. If you had surgery your doc will tell you. ...Read more
Yes: Not all labral injuries are the same. Acute or recent injuries protected appropriately from reinjury have a better chance to heal than chronic or older injuries. Most are treated with an initial course of rest then physical therapy. Only the persistent, symptomatic labral tears may warrant surgical intervention eventually. The final decision is best made between you and your surgeon. ...Read more
I have had a torn labrum and rotator cuff in my left shoulder for over a year now, will it heal on its own? My dr refuses to give me a referral
It will not heal: A labral tear and a rotator cuff tear will not heal on their own. Sometimes, though, even though something (like an mri) says there is a tear, it may not be the full source of the pain. I would recommend an evaluation by an orthopedic surgeon. If you cannot get a referral call some offices and see what an evaluation would cost. You may want to do it that way. ...Read more

My workers comp dr had me get an MRI which showed I had a torn labrum in my right shoulder he says no surgery but I'm in a lot of pain what can I do?
What are symptoms: I would first want to know your symptoms and what part of the labrum was torn. If you had a dislocation and your anterior (front) labrum is torn this may require repair as won't heal. A superior labral tear is essentially your bicep complex. This can be treated conservatively but if pain continues at your age I would generally treat with a bicep tenodesis. ...Read more

Mri says possible torn labrum but doctor gave me shot in shoulder cortizone (hydrocortisone) why? Cant understand this and told me w weeks call in with status why?
Depends: The MRI is not the answer. 90% of the diagnosis and treament course come from the history and physical examination. The MRI is just one piece of the puzzle. Depending on what your exam was, the "possible" labral tear may not even be relevant. I would still continue the treatment for now. Ask him at the next visit what the plans are. You can also get a second opinion. ...Read more

Hopefully: A small labral tear can potentially heal on its own, or it also may not. The injection of stem cells, platelette derived growth factor, or other " growth factors" has been tried for several years; with variable results. The good thing is it is relatively safe, and hopefully the tear will heal. What is not clear if the cells or growth factor was any benefit; but again hopefully you will do well. ...Read more

Multifactoral: Shoulder and arm pain from the shoulder joint can overlap with pain from the cervical spine. In a simple sense, if you move your arm at the shoulder - like bending your elbow and rotating the arm inside and out, or lifting your hand over your head - and it reproduces your usual pain, then it's probably your shoulder. But it can take careful examination and experience to tell the difference! ...Read more
