User:How are you?
Doctor:I am ok
Doctor:How are you?
User:I am good thank you for asking.
Doctor:How can I help you today?
User:I needed your suggestion and diagnosis on a problem.
Doctor:Go ahead
User:History:: I had a Disc Bulge and Nerve Impingement between C5-C6 Vertibra. I got it fixed by undergoing Chiropractic Treatment, however my Scapula was misaligned before the treatment and even post the treatment. So my shoulder always felt out of place.
User:Current Problem:: I started working out as part of my rehabilitation program. But I started getting severe pain in the Acromion, Acromioclavicular Joint and Clavicle areas. The Acromioclavicular Joint being the center of the pain.
User:I tried applying hot-pack and ice-pack but that didn't help. I tried doing Pendulum exercise but that didn't help as well. However I feel relieved when I keep my hands up.
Doctor:Go ahead
User:Yes that would be all.
Doctor:I think physiotherapy should be able to help you
User:I am not sure if it is a Rotator Cuff injury or a Acromioclavicular Joint injury
User:What do you think?
Doctor:Tests will be required to figure it out
Doctor:Since the pain is scattered over two bones
User:What kind of tests? X-Ray or MRI?
Doctor:X-rays are always done first.
User:Okay thank you, i will come back with the results.
Doctor:Thanks for coming on chat
Doctor:Any other concerns?
Doctor:Bye for now.
Doctor:You can always login again to chat with a doctor 24/7
