acromio clavicular subluxation with ligament tear.
Thanks for posting your query.
It seems that you have acromio clavicular subluxation with ligament tear.
Your doctor is correct in saying that it will heal gradually with rest in 3-4 weeks. You can take mild pain killers to deal with the pain. Using broad arm sling will help.
You can also upload your X-rays in the box provided on the right hand side of the query box. It will help in better evaluation.
To confirm the diagnosis and to find out the extent of the ligament tear you can get an MRI
scan of the affected shoulder done and consult an orthopedician with the reports.
I hope this answers your query.
In case you have additional questions or doubts, you can forward them to me, and I shall be glad to help you out.
Wishing you good health.
Dr. Praveen Tayal.
