Mayo Clinic Q&A: Effectively treating a separated shoulder can get you back to your active life
A few weeks ago, I was snowboarding and dislodged my collarbone. I was told I have anywhere from a grade 3 to grade 5 separation. I've had my arm in a sling for three weeks, as was recommended, but it's still painful. Does this type of injury ever heal on its own, or will I need surgery?
