Avoiding Shoulder Surgery

neck pain 1

The term “SLAP” is used to describe a tear or detachment of the rim of cartilage that surrounds the entire outside edge of your shoulder socket. SLAP lesions can be a significant source of pain and disability – especially in throwing athletes like pitchers. Fortunately, new research has found that a well-designed exercise plan “is more successful than surgery for most throwers with SLAP lesions.”
