UCL Tear?

Hi guys,   I am a senior left handed pitcher in high school. It has been difficult for me to pitch and do well throughout my high school career because of my elbow. During my 8th to late 9th grade year, I dealt with growth plate problems in my...

What to do with a SLAP tear

Matt_Gladura ·
I was having shoulder problems for a couple of games and decided to go get it checked out, and they said I had a SLAP tear. I was just seeing if anyone here had any ideas to reduce pain. I am done with baseball, so that won't be a problem anymore, but I was wondering if there was anything I could do.

My son (who is still playing) was diagnosed with two small labral tears this spring. The dr. gave him a cortisone shot and started him on physical therapy to strengthen the muscles in the shoulder. Both helped the pain very quickly (he was having trouble getting comfortable in bed). He is now on a throwing program and has not experienced any pain so far (hope that continues).

I would recommend a course of treatment with a Physical Therapist who specializes in overhand throwing. There are a number of exercises that can help strengthen the supporting structure of your shoulder. Keeping the joint in proper alignment helps reduce pain. I'm an old man, but I had a slap repair 7 years ago and I still have a couple of simple go-to exercises that help keep things in alignment.

A therapist can give you the exercises to do with bands. The routine is to do the therapy if it hurts after you do it a second time if it hurts after that you get surgery but if you're not throwing it will probably work. My son just went through it and had surgery back in February and had to redshirt his first year of college ball but is healing nicely.

When I saw your post, it reminded me of what happened to my son, I am actually pasting up a response I had to a fellow poster on this site where I gave my experience/opinion. My son is now a sophomore in college (D1). There are basically three types of SLAP tears, type 1, 2 and 3 tears, and depending on the severity, the solutions may differ. Here is what I wrote...

Thanks for the reply. I think the doctors told us that it was a type 2,which most pitchers have. One of the doctors told us that "you need to have a SLAP TEAR to throw 90" so I was wondering if throwing faster after a tear is a normal thing?

And if your current orthopedist doesn't think you need an MRI (with contrast), get at least one 2nd opinion. If the second one agrees, then follow the rehab exactly as prescribed. Best of luck, and I hope you're able to get this corrected.

May I request a second MRI with dye? Furthermore, have you guys had any experience with a son having TJ? Pain is usually around the forearm and back elbow, then weakness in forearm to wrist/hand.

Experience with Small Rotator Cuff Fraying/Tear in Pitchers

Lost Dad ·
Well my son (16 year old 6' 2" LHP HS Junior) was getting ready for the summer season of his junior year finishing up high school baseball and his shoulder started to hurt warming up one day and now a little over a week later and an MRI we found out he has some fraying/minimal tearing of part of his rotator cuff. We also found out through this process that he has extremely loose joins (ligamentous laxity) which has likely been the underlying cause of some various injuries he has had over the...

SLAP Tear???

MPatt16 ·
I am a 16 year old baseball pitcher. I was living in Japan until last Summer when I moved back to Hawaii. When I was in Japan, that is when I hurt my shoulder. I was throwing live BP to my teammates and with one throw I felt something weird in my shoulder but I kept on throwing anyways. I simply thought it was just a normal injury and thought it would heal over time and ignored it and continued throwing for a little bit more until I couldn't really tolerate the pain. The pain came from my...

I can only offer my personal experience if it is of any help... I had a tear in the acromioclavicular joint and of the supraspinatus tendon a couple of years ago. It was a acute tear, rather than a wear issue like you are describing. My ortho gave me the option of trying rehab before doing a surgical repair, and that was the route I chose. I saw a therapist a couple of times a week for about two months, and did a ton of exercises on my own as well. Most of the work in the beginning was to...

Highly recommend you read up on anything written by Eric Cressey or Mike Reinold in regards to shoulder instability (laxity) and proper rehab/prehab for rotator cuff injuries. If your son takes great care of his arm and stays with prehab shoulder work, he will be just fine. It really is not that much extra work but takes a commitment. The problem is that most athletes revert to their old ways once an injury heals. Tell him to stick with shoulder work recommended by those in the know as long...

It is a long slow recovery process. 9 months to a year. My deepest sympathies over your injury. Michael Pineda came back from it. Despite the headline of the article below, it doesn't have to be a career ender. http://gargoyle.flagler.edu/20...f-most-debilitating/ http://bleacherreport.com/arti...alls-toughest-injury

Are you talking about if you have surgery or no surgery? And are you talking about SLAP tear because a SLAP tear and a Posterior labrum tear is different

Posterior Labrum Tear, after surgery. The articles I linked have some good info, but by no means are the only opinion
