Shoulder Separation

This is an injury of the acromioclavicular joint (commonly called the "AC" joint). This is the joint where the clavicle meets the scapula. A shoulder separation is a stretching or a tearing of the ligaments that support these bones. This allows the bones to move out of position. Our orthopedic doctors at Nucci Medical can diagnose the problem using physical exam and x-ray and offer treatment options.
