+1. build up the muscles in your rotator cuff to strengthen the shoulder area and you'll heal quicker.

As soon as the pain lying down or sleeping starts to ease begin some very light rotator cuff exercises. Tons on YouTube to show you how. Search for rotator cuff rehab. Don't start the rehab until the pain eases.

You should go see a sports doc, get it leuko taped and slinged back into position
You ahve a short span of like 4-6 weeks for you to hope that heals back into the right spot, otherwise you could have problems down the road.

Do not take anti inflmamatories unless the pain is absolutely unbearable but there are other pain killers you can use

For ligaments to heal, in this case the acromio clavicular ligament, inflammation is an absolute must for healing. You need to brace the clavicle into a position or the scapula into a position where it can heal properly. Basically you want the body to rebridge between the clavicle and the acromion. It's a very short window for this to happen because your body is trying to find a way for it to bridge, but if it cant find the two parts of the bridge it's going to take out any chance, because long term inflammation isnt good for the body.

See a sports doc, NOW. Leukotape, K tape is your friend for this as well as a sling to restrict movement.

That sucks balls, I separated mine last season and it still hurts sometimes. Now I'm laid up with a broken clavicle in the same shoulder, which also sucks balls.

That's your decision to take it or not. right now in the acute stage, There are non anti inflammatory pain killers. Healthcare has this overwhelming obcession with Inflammation. If there is inflammation there's a reason for it, in this case it's because your body is trying to protect the area and figure out what to do with it. You want it to heal, so lets help that process along, not impede it with an anti-inflammatory drug

Make sure your clavicle is lined up with your acromion. Usually there should be a slight dip to where the joint should be. Basically you want to put that joint back in the right place and have the ligaments heal and hold it in place for good. Otherwise you'll be like me and have your clavicle move independently of the acromion. Sucks i learn this now that i'm in school for it :-(. Surgeon missed my AC sprain, PT missed it, GP missed it, everyone did. I dont' get how because there's a flipping bump there. anyways back to helping you

I wouldn't do surgery, my friend had a full rupture of both CC and AC ligaments and it failed so he has a bolt floating around in his body now lol.
It's just an AC rupture by the looks of it. If you really want to know if healing is possible at this point i'd get an MRI to see if there is any of the AC ligament left.

Last words so you're not completely scared, even if you don't get surgery and even if it heals out of place, it's not the end of the world. Baiscally what you do is you have to strengthen all your muscles. It's a huge misconception that you need to strengthen your cuff muscles only for this. Many practitioners across the spectrum will say oh do this this and this and refuse to look at the whole picture. So don't worry if timelines don't work out

For now, Steps
Ice for pain. Ice is probably the best because it flushes out the bad and causes more bloodflow to the area. Eat plenty of omegas 3s so the inflammation is controlled, multivitains, vit c. Just eat HEALTHY.
Position the sling so your scapula is in a nice neutral position and your clavicle is aligned with the acromion.
Shoulder must be relaxed in the sling or you'll make other problems.
