I agree with doctor number two. I don't think the torn labrum is clinically significant, and I do not think a rush to surgery is warranted at this point.
although the labrum may not heal, if the shoulder is stable and pain free, the labrum does not need to be repaired.
Thank u..so the physiatrist claims i have instability in my shoulder and would benefit from 2/3 months of pt..at that point get reevaluated to c if i have improved. I started pt this week and i able to perform exercises with little or no pain,,mostly fatigue but after i workout my shoulder feels like its burning and my arm just doesnt feel right.. I also get that same burning feeling when watching tv on my left side or talking on the phone..research Ive done also states the labrum tears dont heal , u can only rebuild muscle around the affected area. I have a very very physical job of driving and delivering packages for 9 hours a day... My shoulder/arm just doesnt feel right ...Im not rushing to surgery but I think the labrum tear will have to addresed at some point. What do u think?
