The labrum tear is one of the most common shoulder injuries among active people. This painful injury can be caused by a sudden lift of too much weight, a direct blow to the shoulder, a direct fall on an outstretched arm, and a forceful overhead arm motion.

Regardless of the cause, the Labrum tear can cause severe pain, a sense of instability in the shoulder, loss of strength, limited range of motions, locking and popping sound in the shoulder, and many sleepless nights due to the overall shoulder discomfort caused by the condition.

Scott Fodor had been experiencing problems with his shoulder for a while prior to visiting Manhattan Orthopedic Care. However, shortly after his appointment with Dr. Armin Tehrany, one of the top New York shoulder surgeons, Scott knew that the shoulder agony days would soon be over.
