I'm 36 Years Old And 210 Lbs. I'm An Active Body Builder. I Was Riding My Dirtbike And Went Over The Handlebars. I Have An Ac Seperation Grade 3. Not Sure If I Need Surgery Or Not! Will I Be Able To Lift Weights Again? What Am I Looking At In Recovery Time? Thanks

I cant give advice but I can understand your situation, yesterday at practice I seperated my ac joint in my shoulder while going for a hit. I cant even move my left arm now. I went to the ER yesterday and it takes 1-2 weeks to recover. I am sceduled to see my orthopedist soon for more info. I FEEL YOUR PAIN!

I know how you feel too. A week ago I went over the bars of my mountain bike. I still cannot lift or do any exercise.

It Is A Grade 3. I Was Told By My Orthopedist That He Feels I Don't Need Surgery And I Can Always Do The Surgery Later If Needed. Not To Concerned About The Lump But I Do Want To Get Back In The Gym!!!
