I looked at some pictures of shoulder separation bumps, and mine seems to be no where near the point of a grade 3 or 4. I know that is subjective, but the bump really is not that big. I am definitely not going to be pushing for the surgery route as I would much rather try to rehab it, especially with the risk of re-injury in action sports.

If I do go on my trips, I will absolutely stick to greens and just go cruising around. I bought upper body armor as well that I will be wearing for all future riding, especially since I ride so aggressively.

Again, thanks for your help!
In addition to body armor, you should get some good tape and tape the crap out of it for support. The armor will help with impacts, but the random arm swing/pull will not be saved by armor, but tape will help.

I mean shit it might not even be an ac tear. I'm doubting the original doc you saw so see the orth and let them do a proper physical on it lol.
Just ask non surgical options because some orthos can be pushy with surgery when it's really not needed. Always try conservative care first because you'll have to do the same things post op if you need surgery
Let me know how it goes
Awesome, will do. I will keep you posted and let you know what the ortho doc says next week. I have my fingers crossed!

Awesome idea, I will do that as well. Found a decent YouTube video on taping a shoulder for football. Should work for riding just as well. Thanks again!
