Hey I also ask looking for any advice for my son. He is 15 yrs. And is a wrestler. After almost every match he experiences major pain where he can not move it. We plan on surgery after the season is over.
We have been doing dry needle and cortisone shots. Any info on what we should do
As far as mobility or ways to lower the pain would be highly appreciated.
We are pretty sure it is a slap tear and not just a ac. Joint issue. I say that because we
Rested it for at least three months, then strength trained for 5 months and now it is wrestling season and he is dealing with pain and stiffness after a wrestling match.
