I did a quick search on this, but didnít find quite what I was looking forÖ
Has anyone ever suffered (or have any knowledge concerning) a shoulder labrum tear?
Iím specifically looking for information regarding
A surgeon described the labrum to me as a suction cup that hold the shoulder in place. Tears are very common in athletes who do alot of overhead movements: Baseball pitchers and volleyball players.
The main symptom is a general feeling of unstableness in the shoulder and pain when doing any type of overhead movement, especially with weights.
Labrum tears can cause cysts when sinovial (joint) fluid leaks out of the tear. That's what happened to A-rod, except his was a hip labrum tear.
The golfer Greg Norman just had the surgery.
