Chronic Shoulder Pain – Please help!!!!
I have been suffering pain in my AC joint for a long time now. I have tried everything, but with little or no relief!
Some of the pain now seems to be coming from what seems to be the point that the ligaments join onto the collar bone from the caracoid proccess. At the front of the AC joint and running a very short way up my collar bone.
If it was this spot, what would be the diference in symptoms between that and it being the ligament on the top of the AC joint?
Lots of info I have read states that you suffer pain when your arms are above your head. I am fine when they are there. It’s when my arm is out to the side parallel with the ground. Could this signify it’s those other ligaments?
Also…..my Chiro and I are sure that it’s just scar tissue. I have had x-rays and they were clear. The joint has taken abuse for about 18 years. If it is just stubborn scar tissue. Is there anything that can be done?
I have had cross friction, ultra sound, high frequency waves, and chiropractic adjustment.
Could surgery help it???
If it is old scar tissue, would an MRI scan show this?
How much approx would an MRI cost privatly in England? Although I am in physio care on the NHS, they are doing nothing for me!!!
Haven’t even sent me for x-rays! I had to sort that out!!!
PLEASE ANY ADVISE WOULD BE GREAT, I AM GETTING MORE AND MORE DESPERATE.
