Shoulder ligament tears are disorders that we see very frequently, especially in our patients who do sports. Shoulder dislocations caused by blows to the shoulder, sudden movements with the shoulder, blows or traumas cause tears at various levels in the shoulder.
In shoulder ligament tears, if the size of the tear is very small, it can be followed. However, if there is a tear that will cause the shoulder to lose support, surgery is absolutely necessary. In the absence of surgery, dislocations occur again.
Shoulder ligament tear surgeries are performed with arthroscopic methods. After surgery, there is an easier recovery period compared to muscle tears. After 6 months, it is possible to return to all kinds of sportive activities, including heavy physical conditioning.
