Have You Been Diagnosed With a SLAP Tear?

Posted By Cobb Pain & Rehab || 5-Jul-2016

A SLAP tear is short for a superior labrum anterior to posterior tear. This part of the body is a ring of labrum cartridge located in the shoulder area. When this area of the shoulder is torn, injury and physical pain take place.

In many cases, these types of injuries are caused by the following occurrences:

  • Trips and falls
  • Accidents that occur in the workplace
  • Sports injuries
  • Car accidents

Many individuals that suffer these types of injuries experience severe pain in the upper shoulder area and find it difficult to move this area of the body. On the other hand, other persons who have suffered these types of injuries do not experience any kind of pain.

Because these types of injuries and the severity of these injuries can be complex, it is important that persons who have suffered SLAP tears seek help from a specialist right away. A specialist can perform various tests to determine how severe or mild the tear is and what types of treatments can help a patient recover.

If you have suffered a SLAP tear or any other type of injury as the result of an accident, we encourage you to contact a Cobb County chiropractor right away. At Cobb Pain & Rehab, our team stands ready to help you recover!
