Re: shoulder injury

A 185 lb woman of dead wt landed on my shoulder and after 17 days still no treatment??? The x-ray showed that tehscapula is separatedfrom teh clavicle now -I am in dyer pain.. the swellig is going sown but not knowing what the damage is w/out an dMRI I am suffering. Who is a great orthopedi surgeon in CT to read the x-ray or do mri and if needed perform surgury om it? Now it is so I cannot lift it pass midway. I am in shape and was able to lift alot of wt before this happened. Thanks for yout help? What is the success of jsut ot/pt vs shoulder surgury? How do I know what is really needed?

An ideal cushion to help preserve metatarsal phallangeal joint alignment (e.g. bunion deformity and post-operative toe drift).
