The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

Itís no secret that when people contradict themselves, it has the effect of making the flaws in their actions or statements seem glaringly obvious. But what about when WE ourselves get caught contradicting ourselves by someone else?

    labrum tear

    i just recently got word from a surgeon that i have a labrum tear and going to do some surgery to fix it... ive had to miss 3 weeks in the gym and its been driving me nuts, so i dont wanna do the pt for 4-6 weeks to see if it gets better and then take more time after with surgery.. my question is, has anyone had surgery or known anyone who's had surgery on a labrum tear? im just curious to know how much longer i gotta go w/o lifting and training.. and what the rehab process is like.. if anyone has any info. thatd be great..


    cheers

    NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! When I played in high school football 2 years ago I tore one of my labrums (right shoulder). Once I got it diagnosed, the same thing happened to the other shoulder (although I didn't get it diagnosed for that shoulder it seemed the same as the right shoulder), although I suppose it wasn't quite as bad. First of all let's get one thing straight: the labrum does not grow back. If your shoulder gets better it will be because your shoulder muscles have been getting stronger and have been able to better support the shoulder.
    Anyway I got surgery on my right shoulder, they pinned/sewed the labrum up. It was an orthoscopic surgery so I have three almost-dime-sized scars on my shoulder. Took me a few months before I started easing back into lifting; you can probably wait less but I wanted to be careful.
    Nowadays my right shoulder is probably at 90% but my left is also probably about 90% (it wasn't torn quite as bad as my right shoulder, guaging from discomfort and pain). The good news is that it doesn't really get in the way of my lifting and nowadays my shoulders are arguably a strong point on my body. The bad news is that even with it pinned, the labrum does not regenerate so there will always be some slight discomfort. When my arms make certain angles with my shoulder it almost always causes some discomfort but luckily for me those angles are kinda obscure/weird angles anyways. I certainly would expect it to get injured again if I were to play tackle football for a while or something, throwing a baseball fast always hurts, and I look like a girl when I throw a football but otherwise it hasn't really infringed on my life.

    Basically it's just ****ty because the labrum doesn't regenerate so unless they start making some real advances in stem-cell research, my shoulder will never again be at full health.
