The structure of ball joints such as the shoulder and hip contain labral and meniscal tissue that serve to cushion and support and stabilize the joint in its day to day use. As a result of a fall or over exertion during sports, tears can happen in the tissue rendering it painful to use. In the case of a tear, surgery is usually the only option. Due to the complex function of the tissue, and the body’s demand for it during normal function in most cases it is more important to rehabilitate and repair the tissue than simply surgically remove it.
