Ouch! Sprained My Acromioclavicular (AC) Joint

Today (24 August 2013) is the day of the ‘Welsh Closed’ Judo Championships.

Although I had planned to enter, I am unable to do so as I suffered a heavy landing in Judo training two weeks ago which resulted in an acromioclavicular (AC) joint sprain in my right shoulder.

I visited the physiotherapist 2 days after the injury occured and thankfully it was not too serious.  She said about three weeks for recovery although I am thinking it could be a little more as we are two weeks in and it is still very painful.

She gave me a rubber stretchy thing and some excercises to do, but said not to start until the pain subsides.

It’s still very painful when I scratch my butt or wash my ‘hair’ (head) so there was no way I could enter.  Maybe next time.
