AC JOINT

AC (acromioclavicular) Joint injuries are common in contact sports or accidents wherein a collision with the tip of the shoulder occurs. In fact, they are the most common reason an athlete seeks medical attention following a shoulder injury. Read More…

In an injury to the AC Joint, the joint separates and causes damage to one or more of the four ligaments that keep it in place. Injuries to the AC Joint may also injure the cartilage within the joint, fracture the clavicle or acromion, or tear the meniscus inside the joint. If not treated properly, these injuries can later cause arthritis and severe pain in the shoulder.

An AC Joint injury is possible in a person who feels pain on top of the shoulder, took a blunt force to the top of the shoulder, or fell on an outstretched hand. In more severe cases, the clavicle will appear prominent and be sore to the touch.

AC Joint injuries can be very painful and take a long time to heal. For most separations or injuries to the AC Joint, this KT Tape application will drastically reduce pain, provide needed support, and speed the healing process.
