    Question Shoulder Surgery w/ Muscular Atrophy

    Hi, I am new to the forums and I have a question that I haven't really has a straight forward answer to, due to the nature of my injury and is somewhat unique. The main shoulder surgerys I have been reading have been for dislocations, minor shoulder separations, torn shoulder mucles, etc.

    About a year ago and half ago I had a snowboarding accident which ended up in a Class 3/4 AC joint separation. I didn't have surgery on it until a year ago where they has to shave down part of my collar bone, attach cadaver tendons because my injured ones never recovered and were not salvageable, and also had a suture put in as well. (it was not anthroscopic surgery)

    I completed all my physical therapy a few months later and now have all of my full range of motion and some strength recovered in it. Today, I have suffered muscular atrophy from the surgery on my outer trapiezus and deltoid. I have tried working these muscles and I have not been able to regain any noticeable muscle mass in those areas. I am not a really "hardcore" weightlifter, and not familiar with all the weightlifting lingo. But, I am very serious about finally evening out my shoulders due to the physical appearance of it, and to prevent anything down the road. However, I want to safely do so without harming my new tendons and leading to further damage.

    I have been reading around and so far the best exercises for my needed areas are curls, and shrugs. But, are there any others recommended and what supplements to help my growth? I apologize for the VERY long post, but I just want to get my point across as clearly as possible and with all the necessary information. Thanks!

    You have to go to a professional dude even a lot of people like to play doctor on here but it's better you go see someone who knows what they're talking about for something like this.
