Patient : I had a grade I spearated shoulder that I did on November 25th, and am currently almost 100% pain free. I play ice hockey and feel as if I could definitely return to play right now because I have full motion of my arm and shoulder back. I saw an orthopedic doctor and he said I would be out at least 3 weeks. I feel this is way too long considering I feel as if i can play now. So my question is can I return back to hockey? And can you hurt a seperated shoulder worse?
