Your acromioclavicular joint (ACJ) is the area where your collarbone meets your shoulder blade. Injuries to this area are most commonly caused by direct impact or through a fall.

Symptoms of ACJ injury are pain, swelling and reduced mobility. Mild damage can be treated with rest, ice and anti-inflammatory medication. physiotherapy may also be prescribed.

If your injury does not respond to conservative treatment your consultant may recommend surgery. Many of our expert Orthopaedic Surgeons specialise in treating shoulder injuries.
