Shoulder A/C separation in crash???

ANY ANSWERS? 2 weeks ago was on the bike and ate it pretty hard at the track. Shoulder felt mest up so went to the Orthro. and was told I had a level 4-5 a/c joint separation and needed surgery. But between wanting to get back on the track and these great economic times I dont have the $5500 or insurance they want to fix this sh*t correctly. The doc told me though I could try to let it heal but just takes time. Does anyone have ANY type of pointers on this injury? Or some type of rehad to get back quickly? Appreciate it.

If its a level 4-5 I would go ahead and figure out a way to come up with the money to get it the surgery. 1-3 fine, but 4-5 is too extreme. nothing really speeds up the healing process on an a/c joint separation, except time. the tendons have to grow back longer and hopefully attach back to each other. you will always have a little bump on that side too.

I would think surgery would be the best idea, do whatever you can to try and gather the funds. I had a level 2 and that hurt.

i had a level 3 acl (acroclavicular ligament) separation. nothing broken, but i tore the 3 ligaments that hold up the clavicle clean off. options were: 1. let it heal by itself, would take a bit longer, and i would have a 'step' in my shoulder. and 2. get the surgery, have heal a bit quicker and not have to worry about complications later on. one of the deciding factors for me was my age. doc said since i was still young (25) i would heal way better, than if i was older. he also said that if i had been over 35, he wouldn't have even suggested the surgery. i chose surgery and everything is cool now, i got full range of motion in my shoulder and i also have a neat little titanium screw in there that makes my shoulder tingle when the weather is bad. hope that helps

it won't heal.

i look like skelator.

as switch said, two choices. 1) live with it. mine is hardly painful, but sleeping or resting on it can sometimes be uncomfortable. 2) surgery. the recovery period for this surgery according to my doc, was months of keeping the shoulder immobile.

i opted for the 1st.

now my shoulder dislocation, well that side had to be surgically repaired.

(i had to screen shot from one of my youtube videos)
5facts
how gnarly is that? lol.


it actually doesn't always look that badly, I just know how to pop it way out now to gross out the masses.

I had a level 3 and was told surgery would make it look normal, but that;s it. It would not every be as strong as it was before. It was from a skiing accident and I just let it heal for almost 4 months before I could even move it again. Took almost a year of light weight rehad to get full range again. Now it feels fine again, just uncomfortable in certain positions. It looks funny, but hey battle scars. happens. YOurs might need surgery though

like 1 1/2 - 2 months. wasn't too bad, had a hard time showering and getting dressed for the first week or 2. i was in a sling most of the day, but i would take it off for a little bit. after a while i could start doing exercises with it to regain range of motion. IMO the recovery time wasn't that bad and it seemed to go by quickly. if you're young and have insurance, i'd say go for the surgery.

Not fixing this will likely be something you regret.

You should consider taking out a signature loan and doing some extra work to cover the procedure.

Best of luck though.

Thanks for all of the feedback on this yall...between the information I have from you all and my family down my neck, time to get it done I guess. Unless Houseofpain has some extra self-taping screws and a razor blade aha

Was talking about this today...

Not same but simular, 10ish years ago effed rotator cuff, usless ortho HMO sent me to at the time said no problem and I need to work out with rubber bands...

Needless to say, 10 years later, everyonce in a while (like today) sholder feels like it's on fire if I lift my arm over my shoulder...

I'd like to pop that ortho in the nose...

Anyway, fix it now if you can. It'll haunt you if you don't.

the separation is not a big deal. you can live with it. according to multiple doctors, and a conference where my pictures of my separation were shown, if I don't mind looking deformed, and it doesn't cause much pain, I don't need to worry about having it repaired. also, when I unveiled my newly damaged shoulder to my doc, he called multiple others in who were all excited and wanted to take pictures, saying, "I've never seen one that far separated before".

It never bothers me. When the weather changes and my knee, collar bone, and left shoulder (the right is the separated one) ache, the right shoulder is absolutely fine; however, nothing can take away from it's hideousness.

The pain from the separation went away in less than a month, and I was back to riding motocross within a month.
