Acromioclavicular joint separation - our treatment

The correct treatment for your acromioclavicular (AC) joint separation depends on the severity of the injury and your individual physical and athletic requirements.
The degrees of severity of acromioclavicular joint separation are divided into six levels according to Rockwood. Less severe forms (Rockwood I and II) can often be treated successfully using conservative methods.
