AC SEPARATION: Typically an AC JOINT separation can be treated conservatively when it is only a type 2 or 3. Treatment consists of therapy to regain motion after a short period in a sling. If pain persists or you have pain with activities then sometimes surgical intervention is warranted. Consult an Orthopaedic surgeon for a complete work up. Hope this information is helpful.

Ct scan"comminuted fracture is seen within right medial cuniform bone with sliglhty displaced cortical bony fragment laterally"
surgery or cast? Why .
Orthopedic consult: Displaced cuneiform fractures often require an open reduction and internal fixation with screws. This is due to tarsometarsal joint instability. Additional important considerations include - intra-articular vs extra-articular and plane of the fracture. Isolated cuneiform fractures are rare and more likely to happen in association with metatarsal injuries. You need to consult an orthopedic surgeon! ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

The important thing about radial head fractures is the prolonged immobilization of the elbow may cause permanent stiffness. ...Read more

AC separation: Type 1-3 ac separations are typically treated without surgery. A type 3 indicates you tore the capsule and cc ligaments.

These are generally fixed but can carry a high failure rate of 20%. I would see a shoulder specialist to identify yours. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Clavicle fracture,2week passed and not healed and also separated more,could keeping at fixed state still may cause healing?
It will heal: The orthopedists have a saying about clavicle fractures: as long as the two ends of the bone are in the same room, it'll heal. Joking aside, clavicle nonunion is extremely rare. Continue using your sling, and avoid contact sports. Healing will take 6-8 weeks. Hope this helps! ...Read more

Clavicle fracture,2week figure-8,now separated and moved,1 doc indicated surgery but another not.confused,please advise, tinyurl.com/orkq7q8?
Orthopedic MD: See an orthopedic MD. I'd do whatever they suggest. Most of the time they do NOT operate on a clavicle fracture. We've also stopped using figure 8 splints. If your break is really bad, the figure 8 will get you a better result if you choose nonoperative approach, but tends to be more pain with this type of splint. Hope that helps. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Possibly: It depends on the severity of the separation. Most mild shoulder separations settle down in a few weeks, and you can return to hockey. Despite playing in a no contact league, there is inevitably going to be some contact, which can aggravate the injury. You can also get tripped while skating and land on your shoulder, so you have to consider the risks associated with returning to play. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

They are graded from 1 to 3 with 1 taking a few weeks to heal and 3 taking 6-8 weeks to heal and sometimes requiring surgery.

AC separation: Injury to the ac joint commonly occurs when you fall onto the point of the shoulder. Common examples include falling over the handlebars of a bike, or when a hockey player runs into the boards with the side of the shoulder. The injury itself is of the joint capsule that surrounds the ac joint, and as the severity increases, can involve ligaments connecting the clavicle to the coracoid process. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
