It is more or less ... both.
If I press hard on the collar bone, there is pain.
And with just normal day to day use of the shoulder, it kind of feels "jammed" for lack of a better phrase. It hurts worse when I move the shoulder up and to the front and less so when I move it down or back.
The only reason I even mentioned sprain in the initial email is because that is kind of what it feels like. Once before, I stepped on a friends foot while playing basketball, and I had a high ankle sprain that felt similar.
I iced the area extensively last night, and the swelling has subsided. To be honest, though, there wasn't much to begin with
Thank you for the quick reply. Yes, the motion is there and there is no cracking or popping going on.
But I thought I better ask because the pain is worse than I thought it would be for a bruise.
I will get it checked out if there is no improvement by Friday.
