I think I have some AC joint problems. Where my clavicular bone meets my shoulder I have a new bump the size of a marble. I have never been injured before so I dont know anything about anything when it comes to rehab and even truly knowing what is going on.
I have a doctors appointment tomorrow and hopefully he will know what is going on and how bad. Having said that I have been reading and I am pretty sure it is AC joint problems. I also think it is very mild and I have read that there are about 6 cases and I am pretty sure it is not worse than case 1.
My question to you guys.
1- How bad is this injury in terms of getting back to the gym and pushing hard?
2- Does this get better?
3-Can it be rehabbed 100%?
4-How long does it take to fix? I want to make sure i take it easy and not compromise my shoulder.
5-What can I do to help it get better?
6-Eric Cressey, in one of his shoulder articles said NO MORE DIPS, ever! that really upsets me. (Getting geeky with AC joint Injuries). Are there any other exercises I should stay away while I rehab and are there any that I should never do again?
7- Are there any exercises I should be doing to help out?
8- is there a good read on this even if I have to buy it? something hopefully on rehab?
sorry for all the questions but I want to make sure I can come back to the gym and not permanently screw my self up. And to be honest I am pretty freaked out about this.
Thanks in advance.
