What is acromioclavicular injury?

Acromioclavicular joint injuries are common and often seen after contact sports and accidents. The acromioclavicular joint is located at the top of the shoulder where the acromion process and the clavicle meet to form a joint. Torn ligaments lead to acromioclavicular joint sprains and separations.
