Re: AC Joint Advice

What kind of degeneration? Osteoarthritis?

Eliminating the amount of inflammation with anti-inflammatories might help some. Fish oil is good. Glute and nightshade intolerance, cut down the amount of carbs. It depends on your genetics but if you're incompatible with some of these and they're causing inflammation, it can lead to degeneration. Not always the case though.

As far as that goes if your diet is already pretty good, I don't know enough about surgery to the AC joint to give you an opinion. Might be a good idea to get a second opinion from a doc who treats athletes though.
