Posterior labral tear

A posterior labral tear may occur when a person falls on his/her arm when it is extended. The posterior labrum may also be torn while doing heavy bench-presses, etc. Upper posterior labral tears occur among those who engage in sports where overhead throwing is common. The reattachment of the posterior labrum is technically similar to that of the anterior labrum.
