Had a skiing accident last saturday, went to doctor today, had x-ray done. Results should be in a few days, but doc told me I got separated shoulder. I can't really afford Physical Therapy, since my insurance sucks.
What do I do next? Thanks.
P.S. I should mention one more thing. I already been going to the doc for pinched nerve and tendinitis in the same shoulder.

Anyone had separated shoulder before? What kind of exercises did you do? Special care, etc.?

i'm a hard headed guy..just a month after that injury i had it again..so from my experience..you had to rest it for a months or 2..when you got shoulder injury you had damaged muscle tissues and ligaments..ligaments are irreplaceable..as you got injured you had lessen its efficiency..
i've been through therapy and what was strictly told to me to do is just lateral/side raises and no overhead, no rotating cuff and shoulder shouldn't be forced to the back..i've been assisted cause i was shaking..also my warm up that time was doing pedal with my hands(i didn't know what was that)..just take it light and easy ALWAYS..

Have you gotten your results back, yet? The type of care really depends upon the grade of separation.

It's type II separation. Didn't break anything. I'll be 2 weeks this Saturday and I'm doing great. Better then I could ever imagine. My doc cleared me for work two days ago. I have somewhat physical job and so far so good, but I'm being very careful.
3-4 g of Super Cissus a day, healing meditations, ice packs, ibuprofen, etc. made such a huge difference. I was told I'm out for 4 weeks, so I'm really happy of going back to work, got bills to pay, you know. But I'm not gonna lift weights for few weeks just to be safe.

To really strengthen it up, start from scratch and work on rotator-cuff exercises, work on trapezius strength, and also really work on posterior delt strength.
