Glenoid Labrum Tear
The glenoid labrum is the rim of cartilage that surrounds the "socket" of the ball and socket shoulder joint. This rim of cartilage is fibrous in nature, and while this makes it pretty tough, it can still tear if enough force or repeated irritation can be placed on it.
Injuries to the tissue rim surrounding the shoulder socket can occur from acute trauma or repetitive shoulder motion. Examples of traumatic injury include:
- Falling on an outstretched arm
- Direct blow to the shoulder
- Sudden pull, such as when trying to lift a heavy object
- Violent overhead reach, such as when trying to stop a fall or slide
