Hello, I met an accident 1 week ago. As I was wearing riding jacket which meant for safety I managed to survive any brutal injury, only my right shoulder has faced injury i.e. Dislocation of acromioclavicular joint. Now, the doctor advised me to use hand bag for 3 week. The problem is that I don't want to show it in my home. I hope you understand my query. Is there any other way other than using hand bag. Please please reply. Thank you.

You need to fully immobilize your shoulder and so need a sling and brace. If you continue to move arm and dislocation gets worse you will need surgical repair of the torn tendons. And several Physiotherpy sessions after surgery to get movement back You decide based on risks involved. Good luck.
