”Many patients who hear the word “tear”, think (understandably) that must mean that it is abnormal and often choose to have the tear fixed when their physician recommends it. It sounds logical.. no? Unfortunately, many of your parts in your body wear out. They fray, they tear and those findings frequently mean nothing. Most of you with labral tears in your shoulder, especially superior labral tears or SLAP lesions have had them for years before your shoulder was MRI performed. Yes.. the tear was pre-existing … and therefore may NOT be the source of your pain and thus does NOT require surgery.”
