Acromioclavicular (AC) joint arthrosis is a common degenerative disorder that can lead to pain and difficulty during everyday use of the shoulder. The acromion is the part of the scapula that makes up the roof of the shoulder; it connects with the clavicle at the AC joint. In this condition, there is a weak attachment at this joint, causing grinding and pain. In addition, the AC joint is particularly prone to the development of osteoarthritis during middle age. This condition contributes to its onset.
Treatment for AC Arthritis can include surgical and non-surgical methods including physical therapy or pain management.
