hey its probably been covered and probably a stupid question but when it comes to ac joints is a subluxation the same as a dislocation. Because of just got my x rays back and the notes say i have a grade three subluxation of the ac joint. i thought subluxation was only a partial dislocation but from what ive researched it apears its a grade three dislocation because i have a very prominent bump on my ac. (seen through shirts)

Also i've had the injury for a few weeks, how much more damage may i have done. A few weeks because i was told different things by different physio's.

sorry i forgot to mention exactly the injury occured four weeks ago this saturday and i have done some light running and did try to train initially but after a minute realised it was fairly stupid idea. I play australian rules football.

im still hoping to play this year we have 14 weeks left is that realistic. By the way i'm seeing a physio on friday i just wanted answers before then if possible.
