What is a shoulder labral tear?

A shoulder labral tear is a common injury caused by instability in the shoulder joint. The shoulder is a ball and socket joint – the head of the humerus or arm bone sits firmly in the shallow socket of the shoulder blade, held together by strong ligaments and tendons called labrum. When the labrum is torn, it can cause pain, limited range of motion, instability, and a feeling of popping or catching in the joint.

What are the symptoms of a shoulder labral tear?

Common symptoms of a shoulder labral tear include sensations of grinding or popping when moving the shoulder joint, sharp pain in the shoulder that is worse with certain movements, loss of range of motion and strength in the shoulder area, difficulty reaching up over the head or behind the back, nighttime pain that interrupts sleep patterns, soreness in the shoulder after partaking in certain activities, persistent aches and pains that are deep within the shoulder joint or radiating into other areas such as neck and upper arm.

What are the treatments for a shoulder labral tear?

Shoulder labral tears can be treated in many ways depending on the individual’s needs. For those looking to avoid any type of surgical intervention, chiropractic care or physiotherapy may be an effective way to address shoulder labral tears. Common chiropractic techniques used to treat shoulder stability and mobility issues include mobilization, traction and soft tissue work. Physiotherapists may recommend stretching and strengthening exercises as well as specific manual therapies like joint mobilizations or nerve glides. Massage therapy can also be beneficial for muscle relaxation and improving shoulder range of motion.
