A superior glenoid labrum tear is a common injury in the shoulder. The highest incidences of superior labrum tear from anterior to posterior (SLAP) lesions occur in individuals from 20-29 years old and 40-49 years old. Common signs and symptoms include: instability in the joint, shoulder dislocations, pain with overhead activities, decreased range of motion, and loss of strength. SLAP lesions are less commonly seen in the workplace. There is little detail/research about which joint mobilizations/therapeutic exercises are most beneficial for this population. The purpose of this case report is to explore the post-operative PT management of a Workers’ Compensation patient with a superior glenoid labrum lesion.
