A sprained shoulder involves tearing of the ligaments in the shoulder which connect the bones to each other around the joint. Usually a shoulder sprain involves the acromioclavicular joint, and this is sometimes known as “shoulder separation”. Sometimes, although less frequently, a shoulder sprain may involve the sternoclavicular joint. There are three grades of shoulder sprain from the mild (grade 1) to the severe (grade 3) and depending on which type the patient is suffering from, the recovery time for sprained shoulder could be as long as five months.
Sprained Shoulder Symptoms
Patients who have a Grade 1 sprain will experience milder symptoms than those who have a Grade 3 sprain, however many of the signs are similar. Some of the symptoms to look out for include:
- Tenderness in the collarbone
- Pain when moving the shoulder or arm
- Pain to the touch
