Acromioclavicular joint separation – our treatment

Acromioclavicular joint separation is divided into different degrees of severity (e.g. according to Tossy and Rockwood). Your treatment varies depending on the degree: If you have a rather slight acromioclavicular joint separation, conservative measures such as physiotherapy exercises are usually sufficient for treatment. If the severity is higher, surgery is a sensible treatment. A distinction is also made between acute and chronic injuries. Both are usually reconstructed using minimally invasive arthroscopic techniques. In the event of chronic injuries, additional tendon materials are used to ensure permanent, best possible stability. You can rely on the expertise and experience of our shoulder surgeons in Neustadt in performing acromioclavicular joint surgery: They are proven specialists and have extensive knowledge, especially in gentle, minimally invasive surgical techniques. This shortens the duration of your aftercare. In any case, you should perform consistent exercises to strengthen your muscles for several weeks after acromioclavicular joint separation surgery.
