AC Joint Problems
One of the most confusing joints in the whole human body is the AC joint - it simply makes no sense. That being said, the good news is that there is often a very successful conservative treatment for most AC joint problems, whether it be mild pain that responds to NSAIDs, advanced arthritis that responds to an ultrasound guided cortisone injection, or an AC separation that can be treated with rest, ice, and home exercises you learn at therapy.
