Re: AC Joint Advice

I was back to normal (or 99%) about 8 weeks after surgery, and I had open surgery and not arthroscopy. I think my doc shaved a bit of bone from both, the end of the clavicle, and a little bit of the acromium. I did TONS of research and reading on this procedure before deciding to get it done, and for the most part I found it is indeed an easy procedure with very high success rate. My only regret is not doing it sooner, I wasted over a year not being able to workout properly and progress because of AC joint arthrosis. 8 weeks after surgery I had full ROM in every direction, no pain, and was doing crossfit.
