My son fell on his...
My son fell on his shoulder in a soccer game a few weeks ago. The athletic trainer said he strained his ac joint in shoulder. He has continued play and it doesn’t hurt but when he lifts weights the joint slides side to side a little. It doesn’t hurt but you can feel it with your hand on it. What does this mean

The AC joint is the connection between the clavicle (collar bone) and the acromion (front part of scapula). AC joint injuries damage the ligaments that connect the two bones,similar to the way an ankle sprain damages ligaments in the ankle.Most AC joint injuries take 8 weeks to heal. The movement he gets is due to the ligaments not being fully healed yet, if he has pain, he should limit the painful motion for now until pain free.Does that help answer your question?

There isn’t any pain but I told him not to lift weights til after Jan 1. What do you recommend
If it’s only been a couple weeks, would watch overhead lifts since would potential delay healing

Thank you. I was worried maybe it was something else and I was a bad mom lol
No, these are common injuries. Pai is usually limiting factor and he should do well with it.

I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
