So if any of you guys read my post from around 6-7 weeks ago, you'll know what happened, but if not heres what happened in a short answer. I fucked up, slammed my face from around 8 feet up and slammed my shoulder.. woke up in the ambulance on the way to the hospital hahah, anyone my concussion is basically gone, but with my shoulder, I can't even bunny hop or 360 without pain. Not even 10 pushups either.. I just wanted to ask if any of you guys have had the same injury, and if so/not how would i heal faster, its been about 6-7 weeks and still pain, Im pretty sure its a bone contusion, (Really badly bruised bone), and its just being a bitch knowing it hurts to ride, and i don't want to fuck it up anymore..

SEE A SPORTS DOCTOR.

The shoulder is made up of many different parts. There is no way we can know what your specific issue is. If you don't take care of this issue it could be the reason you won't be able to ride your bike for the rest of your life.

I broke 3 bones in my foot last weekend. sucks balls, man.

Don't expect instant results for healing. I wrecked my shoulder in 04, it still gives me the occasional trouble now. I was stupid and was back on my bike before I was supposed to be out of a sling which didn't help.

I'm a doctor here's my opinion:

You need to schedule a visit with an orthopedic clinic with a shoulder specialist. From there they can do a CT scan or MRI to check for any soft tissue damage but a good physical exam should be able to diagnose the problem as well. Could be a separated shoulder, rotator cuff injury, or just some bruising to the tissue. For now, stay off of it and take anti-inflammatories (Aleve, Ibuprofen) to reduce pain and swelling

tore my rotator cuff getting checked in hockey 3 years ago...I still don't have full range of motion to this day. PArt of it is my fault...I tried to play the rest of the game thinking it was "just a bump".

Definitely follow the Dr's orders and don't push it beyond what it can do too fast

If your shoulder hurts, I would recommend building up 7 different bikes and not riding any of them.
