In most cases, you can recover from a SLAP tear through physiotherapy. However, if the SLAP tear is more severe, surgery may be the best option. Discuss with an orthopaedic surgeon to determine which treatments are most suitable for you.
Keep in mind that if your condition requires surgery, your Orthopaedic Surgeon should always educate you on:
- Risks of the surgery
- How to prepare for a surgery
- What will be required for post-op care
