Abstract

IN BRIEF: The acromioclavicular (AC) joint is vulnerable to injury in collision sports and in activities requiring repetitive overhead motions. The spectrum of injury includes sprains and osteoarthritis of the AC joint and osteolysis and fracture of the distal clavicle. With the exception of severe sprains and fractures, most conditions can be managed nonoperatively. The key to successful treatment is prompt and accurate recognition of the severity of AC injuries.
