Shoulder Separation Inquiry


Just signed up to the forum and looking to see if anyone can provide some guidance. I am a competitive softball player and 4 weeks ago I incurred a Grade 2 shoulder separation when I fell shoulder first into the dirt. I went to the ER that night and saw an orthopedic surgeon a week later who diagnosed it. Since then, I have been going to physical therapy two times a week and doing all of my exercises to help it get stronger. I expect another 4 to 8 weeks before I return to softball.

My question is this. I am a shortstop. My position requires numerous aggressive and powerful throws across the field to first base. I'm just wondering if anyone has had this injury and has been able to make a full recovery afterward?? I have seen numerous posts that full recoveries can be made but no one talks about being able to throw. Not only throw, but throw with the same velocity as before the injury. I'm nervous that I wont be able to play shortstop any more. I can imagine only time will tell, but it would be nice to hear if anyone has overcome this with a similar situation. Any words of wisdom??

Thanks so much!!
