What is a Shoulder Separation?shoulder_acromioclavicular_separation.jpg

A shoulder separation is an injury to the ligaments that connect the collarbone to one of the shoulder bones.  A fall on the point of the shoulder is the typical mechanism for a shoulder separation.  A direct blow to the shoulder or a fall on an outstretched hand may also produce one.  Football and hockey are common sports associated with shoulder separations.
