Re: Bump on Shoulder

I suspect you have an acromioclavicular ligament tear. It may be a type 2 or even
type 3 separation. This ligament holds the clavicle and the top of the scapula, (shoulder blade) together. The surgeon may have repaired it at the time but it has become overstretched. Of course there is no real proof that your overuse caused it but it would have been prudent to have followed a graduated program. Dont feel too guilty, very few patients follow up with the recommended exercises. The good news is that these injuries very rarely cause later trouble. May spoil your appearance on the beach with a bump un the shoulder!!
