If there is a visual deformiity from a type II or type III AC joint widening, how does the deformity go back to its normal location?
It does not:
Grade 2 and 3 ac joint separations do not go back to its normal location. The shoulder becomes painless, and normal function ensues after a period of 6weeks or so. If that's the case, nothing further needs to be done. If the shoulder is painful and functionally compromised, surgery is indicated to reconstruct the ligaments of the ac joint.

I had an MRI scan of my back n they said me tht I have a joint spine prob so what type of prob is ths? Is ths serus? N they will put 4injections a day.
Painful, not serious: First possibility: the joint referred to is an intervertebral disc. This is not as likely as this would usually require only one injection. The second possibility is the zygapophysial (or "facet") joints. If the L4-L5 & L5-S1 facet joints appear arthritic on imaging, both levels may be injected, sometimes bilaterally, accounting for four injections. The underlying problem? Arthritis. ...Read more
