I understand that young athletes would get surgery with cat II to III AC dislocation, but here in DK they treat people over 30 "conservative" meaning letting nature take care of it.
I do various soft excersizes with rubber bands building the internal muscles re-aligning the shoulder as correct as possible and recently I started lifting heavier weights to build up the big exterior muscle groups.
40 %.. thats a challenge. Keep the spirits high !
Thanks. that is what I understood too. pretty much the treatment worldwide. with CAT II and III it is really a toss up if the surgery is worth it.
