I have a torn labrum, should I get it fixed?

Symptoms? In a general sense it depends on the extent of your injury and current symptoms. An unstable shoulder can gradually result in greater levels of injury to the shoulder tissues: http://www.Theshouldercenter.Com/shoulderpain/2012/shoulder-surgery/playing-can-worsen-already-damaged-shoulders/ http://www.Theshouldercenter.Com/shoulderpain/2012/shoulder-specialist/surgeryspecialist.
