how do you "pop" a collar bone into place?

screwed up a shoulder playing soccer a few years ago and every so often my left collar bone seems to "pop out of place" just enough to be annoying. generally it'll bind up shortly thereafter and then "pop" it's all good and back in place. well i'm going on 24 hours with it needing to "pop" and it hasn't. i can't get it to go and my chiropractor is out of his office till tomorrow morning. anyone have this issue and a fix? i'm thinking if i just run full out and slam it into a wall ala mel gibson in lethal weapon i may get er to go.

Raise arms over your head, clench hands together, and pull on your hands as hard as you can.

if it keeps popping out like that, you're tendons/ligaments that hold it in place are likely stretched out way to much. Sorry if its no help, but you may want to speak with an orthapedist and see if surgery is an option.

yeah that's the move that usually ends up popping it back in...usually when i go to reach up high for something but it's not doing the trick!

Bend over at the waist, put your hands against the wall, and push with your legs as hard as you can against the wall, palms flat. If that doesn't put it back in you need to see a doctor.

been there, done that... it's not bad enough to warrant surgery but enough to be a pain. i was diving in full extension, got bumped and basically landed on my armpit dislocating the shoulder and causing some stretching/tearing. i'm sure i'll really love it as i get older

The best way to get it back into place is to find a phone book...open to the physician's section....set you right index finger in the middle of the page...call and make an appointment...

yup, its still not working for me so i'm off to the chiropractor first thing in the morning. shoulder blades a bit tight too so i'm wondering if i don't just have a couple high ribs out which is aggravating the issue.

that's when it started but eventually the mary jane wasn't enough for them. damn second rib started it all and coaxed fourth rib to give it a try. then the two of them kind of peer pressured ribs 7 and 8 into toking a bit. now they have found a need for a better high and have taken to the black tar heroine and some ocassional meth

i tried calling my old coach, Pat Morita, so he could work his magic but unfortunately the healing warmth doesn't work from the grave

Well, meth is where I'd draw the line.

me too! word around the kidney is that the meth may go away now that arizona is requiring id's for any sales of sudafed. they always preferred to cook their own and considering they don't have valid id's they are going to have a difficult time procuring new ingredients.

You have to have a buddy pull on your arm with his feet in your shoulder, then you yell AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA and he yanks on it popping it back in to place. Then you tape it up and go on to win the match.

That only works if you are the best of the best, part 1 I think?
