Slap tear of the shoulder joints -how long the mend

Has anyone[surely] done a Labreal tear [called slap tear] of the inside of the shoulder joints. Is there any hope fo recovery without surgury?

if so what did you do and how long did it take. Mine have been in pain now for over 5-6 weeks and little improvement in that time and night time pain terrible some nights.
Couldnt help myself tree hopping but this time it went wrong...

all i can say is that shoulders are the most underated joint in the body.
they move in directions that other joints are jelous of.
if you get it fixed or not welcome to a life of pain and discomefort.sorry to sound negative but thats how it is.

Try glucosamine chondroitin with MSM and megadose it.

I had a meniscal tear in the knee (shoulder labrum is cartilage) and after taking this stuff my operation was cancelled and I played 6 more seasons of rugby. Finally retired at 41. It's awesome stuff and everyone I know who has taken it has some kind of miracle recovery story to tell.

21years ago, when i was 21, i tore 80% of my shoulder muscles, and had a disslocation, dam, it was near the worst 3 weeks of my life. But after a month i was at the gym, rebuilding all those torn muscles, it took 2-3 months.

Sounds like you need to go thru some major rehab, surgery or not it takes time, and a lot of work.

Best of luck mate!!! wish you all the best!

It's almost criminal how easy it handled the tight stuff, it was light years beyond what I could get away with on my 2010 YZ450, and you could steer it with the power like a pro whether going fast or slow. Seriously impressive.

I slipped on a roof and dislocated my shoulder 11 years ago, tore my labeum from the bone.
Did some rehab, thought I was Ok, but found about 6 months later that I was waking up in the middle of the night with a dislocated shoulder. Had a recon, and no more problems, until i dislocated it 3 years ago in the high country, then again doing boxing training. Had a second recon on it 15 months ago.

Needless to say I am very aware of my shoulder these days. Best to carry out regular strengthening for the rest of my life I think. Every injury is unique. Listen to your specialist, not internerd dirtbike experts.

I tore my shoulder capsule and tendons and dislodged the cartildge (labral) that cushions the joint in June last year. Didnt think it was overly bad at the time, I still raced another 150km that day and did the 230km return leg the next day. In hindsight I probably should have pulled out like the doctor told me to and likely saved myself some pain but I didnt,anyway.
I was a sling for a week and then very sore for a month before I started to work on range of motion with the physio. Was sore and weak for 5 months before I thought I could get back on the bike and even then I was very cautious coz it felt like it would drop out easily. If you want to get away without surgery it takes a long time to heal to a usable state.
I have never had surgery so I wasnt very keen on it but the doc told me it would only get better so far and be ok if I wasnt active but if I wanted to do any sport it would need surgery.
I had surgery in Jan (3 screws holding everything in place) and it is taking longer to recover from that than the dislocation. I still have very limited movement and no strength but the doc seems to think its going as expected and it will come back if I work on it.
I have a bit of work to do yet but hopefully it will be ok soon.

I did my AC joint in my shoulder at Yellow Mountain (August) last year.

I regained full strength and movement within 6 weeks of the accident, although even now it gives me some discomfort and clicks a bit.

My collarbone now sits a very strange angle creating a big lump on my shoulder. Doctors didn't want to operate there reasons being I could lose some movement or strength to gain cosmetic.

+ 1 also had a mate have his surgery cancelled after using this stuff. Can't hurt worth trying.

I had a recent SLAP tear and required chromiplasty of my shoulder blade, Not much hope with surgery but after the surgery was completed recovery time was much greater than i expected. I was back wakeboarding after 7 days (all be it just hanging on no tricks or anything) and full recovery was about 4 weeks.

My surgeon actually said i can do whatever i want as i cant damage he joint any more just have to put up with the pain. I put up with shoulder pain for years and wish i had the operation earlier, was very short recovery time.

but as others said listen to your doctor, they will be able to advise you the best.

Good Luck!
