Labral Tears

The labrum is a band of connective tissue that creates stability in the shoulder joint by preventing the ball from moving too far in the front or back of the socket.

Some labral tears occur as natural aging process, while others are the result of trauma (a shoulder dislocation). Traumatic labral tears are usually treated with surgery while degenerative(age-related) tears are treated without surgery.
