Can a torn labrum (left shoulder) heal itself?

Can a torn labrum (left shoulder) heal itself?

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.

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
