What kind of injury is this?

On monday I hit a baby natural jump and went a little off-balance. I thought 'oh well, just a little tumble and i'll get back up and go". Turns out the landing was pretty flat with a thick layer of ice-like snow. I slammed my shoulder onto it and it hurt like a mofo, but I just got back up to'ride it off'. After 100 yards though I stopped to lay down for a bit. After some convincing I let my buddy look at it and he said it didn't look right at all(like dislocated), so he went down to get patrol. At that moment there wasn't much pain it was just extremely stiff/sore to move. They took me down to the hospital and we opted to see our own doc later instead paying the ER cost there because it looked like it was swelling that made it look funny, not dislocation. It was in a sling for the day and was iced. Now it's 3 days later and we never went to the doc cuz it seems to be getting slightly better, but my range of motion is still pretty limited cuz of the stiff/soreness, but not much pain really, and I iced it last night but that's it since the day I hurt it. It also feels poppy/crunchy(not big pops or crunches, just a bunch of little ones) all the time if I reach for something or even just move a little sometimes. What did I do? And what SHOULD I do?

probably a low grade AC joint separation (separated shoulder)


but your stupid ass should go to a doctor instead of asking snowboarders on the internet to diagnose you.

First off, I would recommend going to see the doctor. After the amount of trouble I have had with my own shoulder in the past, it's not something you want to ignore. In my case, I used to have a very strong throwing arm. It's basically gone now.
EDIT: and in my case, I DIDN'T ignore it!

How did you land on it though? Was your arm outstretched? Or was it in tight to your body so you landed with your arm under you?

Get some proper treatment. I had a partial shoulder separation a few years ago from a really simple and stupid fall on a cat track near the end of the day. It was painful for a while but I thought it would just heal naturally. My doc made me promise to go to physio and, after treatment, the physio put me on a regime of exercises. Best thing I ever did. It took several months to get full mobility and strength back but it did come back.

Tight to my body so yeah pretty much under me. And yeah you guys are probably right, I just thought it would heal naturally in a week or two. I've never had a shoulder injury before.

And i'm guessing I probably shouldn't go back up this weekend?
