Acromio-Clavicular Dislocation


A common injury to the AC joint is dislocation, often called AC separation or shoulder separation. This is not the same as a "shoulder dislocation," which refers to dislocation of the glenohumeral joint. Acromioclavicular joint dislocation is particularly common in collision sports such as ice hockey, football, Judo, rugby and aussie rules, and is also a problem for those who participate in swimming, horseback riding, mountain biking, biking and snow skiing.

Acromioclavicular joint dislocations are graded from I to VI. Grades I and II never require surgery and heal by themselves, though physical therapy may be required.
