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?

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.
