Physio Edge podcast

Traumatic superior labrum anterior to posterior (SLAP) tears can occur in contact athletes and other patients that land on their arm or shoulder, and in throwers and other athletes. Initial assessment and even MRI often miss or misdiagnose these injuries, leading to ongoing shoulder, long head of biceps tendon (LHBT) or ACJ pain.

In this podcast with Jo Gibson (Upper Limb Rehabilitation Specialist Physio) you’ll discover how to identify patients with SLAP tears. You’ll explore which assessment tests can be used to diagnose and differentiate SLAP tears from other causes of shoulder pain, and which imaging modalities will actually identify SLAP tears.

The handout for this podcast is an article referenced in the podcast. There is no additional transcript or handout available.
