Separated shoulder: A pic tells the story
The collarbone "break" is actually at the ligament connector point. Guess that's good news based on what could have happened.
When I took the impact, the collarbone was raised about an inch off the shoulder blade. That could have been a must-do surgery clue, but what's interesting is that over the first night, the collarbone settled back into place.
All that remained was swelling and pain.
I won't see the ortho doc for another week, but I seem to be experiencing reduced pain each day and a slow increase in range of motion.
Maybe I can heal and be free to hit the trails again soon.
