Patient: I’ve had a labrum tear and my doctor had an MRI done and confirmed it. There was a SLAP tear but he didn’t want to surgery because he did not think it was necessary. He said if I felt like my shoulder was going to fall out every second, then it would be recommended. I had a dislocated shoulder from playing football. When i do daily activities, i hear a small tears all the time and the area hurts and numbness comes immediately. Is there something i can do to prevent the pain. numbness, and instability?
