    Let it heal? Doctor's didn't do shit for me when I tore it 2 years ago, just let it heal and practice some range of motion with it

    depends on the tear.
    if it's partial you're fine. lots of mobility, no heavy lifting period.
    if it's full tear surgery is only option, period.

      Light, doctor says I can do PT but I found a video saying you should use a splint and lock the shoulder back into place.

        SLAP tear here on the left side. It fricking SUCKS but stop pretty much any heavy weighted exercise for at least a month or three. Do your PT, instill the discipline in yourself to do the stupid fricking resistance band bullshit they prescribe you, because in the long run it really does help. I’ve been dealing with it for a year or two now, I still get the pains after a heavy bench/OHP day but pendulum/deadhang/rest it out and can still lift heavy.

        You can still haze the frick out of your upper body with limited shoulder/arm motion, just have to get creative which keeps the gym fresh

          I have Medicaid

          why didn't your doctor tell you what to do?

          He just said PT but I saw a YouTube video that said to put it in a sling
          I'm doing PT but it still pops all the time

      I just so happened to have a type 2-3 SLAP tear (as diagnosed by the best shoulder surgeon in my country with the use of MRI) while snowboarding 9 months ago and I read a LOT of shit about this so listen up Black person.

      First of all, a labrum tear is technically irreparable without surgery, which means that shit is not going away on its own. HOWEVER, you may still be able to recover up to 90%-100% of your shoulder strength and mobility without surgery.
      Now, you might think that a surgery might be a good idea so you can be sure that you will recover 100% of your shoulder function but that is heavily disputed.
      First of all, surgery in no way guarantees that you will recover 100% of your shoulder function, in fact, a lot of people will not and whats more, the surgery might actually make it worse. Not to mention the recovery time can be a year plus.

      There was a study that compared recovery with surgical intervention + PT vs. no surgical intervention + PT. I can't find the study now, but basically, the conclusion was that in most cases, you will actually be better off not getting the surgery.

      Personally I also chose the non-surgical option because the surgeon recommended cutting off the long biceps tendon and reattaching it somewhere else (tenodesis). Now I am, as I said, 10 months post surgery and I am at basically full strength on shoulder pressing movements even though I couldn't even lift my arm above my head without tremendous pain and cracking post-injury. Even the next few months things looked dire, but slowly over time its getting better and better.

      Whats important for you, is to not do anything that hurts. You should do only those PT exercises that either do not cause you pain, or only cause very little. But you should definitely do them as soon as you're able to without much pain. You're looking at a long recovery time but you can still fully train your other side and even on your injured side you can still do exercises that don't cause pain.

        Meant to write "10 months post-injury" not "surgery".

        Also don't let ISTards meme you into thinking that training only one side of your body is bad. You will be able to keep much more muscle on your injured side while training your healthy side. This is because the body tries to maintain symmetry, there are also studies on this.

        I used to do chest pressing movements only on my healthy side for 4 months and shoulder movements 7 months.

    both my labrums are torn and i got hill sachs lesions meaning its like someone took a bite from the ball joint from the wear from dislocations. I'm prob perma fricked, need surgery most likely and even that won't keep it stable. dislocations/subluxations for life, no overhead exercises, no flys, nothing where the shoulder is abducted really, it's crazy.
