Self Diagnosis - Separated Shoulder

Hey,

So about 15 minutes into evaluation camp, I collided with another guy... when I hit the ice, I felt like I couldn't move my shoulder for about a minute or so.

When I got up I was able to move it around, though it's been pretty sore. It was sore throughout the rest of camp (couldn't really shoot, passing was fine).

On the drive home it wasn't bad, but I had some discomfort going hand over hand.


Anyways, I don't really feel like going to the doctor. Is there any way for me to check for signs of a separated shoulder on my own?

The same thing happened to me. I didnt go to the doctor, I asked my coach and stuff. My grandpa had some cream that he used back in the day xD. I bought one of those hot pouches. Evreytime I went to sleep I put them on. I had pain for like a week. Then like a day or two later it just went away.

No point in going to the doctor unless your insurance covers an MRI. There is nothing they can do for a shoulder injury except tell you to wear an immobilizer or get surgery.

Definitely take it easy. Is camp over or do you still have more tryouts? If you can, don't play for a week or 2, then start giving it light workouts. Learn some stretches to do before every time you play. You don't want this reoccurring, because then it becomes a serious problem.

disclaimer: i'm not a doctor, just speaking from experience from dislocating my shoulder several times. don't listen to any advice given in this thread.

I'll probably make a sling before I go to bed and wear it for a little while...

This is Canada, ***** covered
Separated shoulder is best to go to doctor. I got hit when I was younger sharp pain in my shoulder for whatever reason, turned out to be a fractured collarbone in 2 places.

Doctors are way over rated in the field of medicine. Don't bother with the sling either, it might help. Maybe you can use your pocket knife to slice open your shoulder and look around?

Turns out that it's a grade II separation (worse than I thought, but not as bad as it could be) meaning I'm out of commission for about a month.
