  • Separated Shoulder

    Introduction
    A separated shoulder (also known as acromioclavicular separation, AC joint separation, AC separation), is a common injury to the acromioclavicular joint. This is not to be confused with shoulder dislocation which occurs when the humerus separates from the scapula at the glenohumeral joint. The trauma to the shoulder affects the ligaments holding the two bones—the scapula and the clavicle—together. This injury does not always involve bone fractures; however if the impact to the shoulder is severe, fractures may occur.

    Symptoms
    Symptoms of a dislocated shoulder are as intense pain as soon as the injury occurs, tenderness of the shoulder and collarbone, swelling, bruising, deformed shoulder.
    Treatment
    Treatment of a separated shoulder depends on the severity of the injury. When beginning treatment some of the things one should do first, is control the inflammation, rest the joint, and ice the joint. Rest the joint which will also help minimize painful symptoms and allow the healing to begin. When icing, it should be done every four hours for 15 minutes at a time. Surgeries like Weaver-Dunn procedure, arthroscopic can be done. Physical therapies such as external shoulder rotation, shoulder extensions can also be performed.

    Statistics
    Around two-thirds of those admitted to hospital were aged under 35 and over three-quarters were men.People aged 65 and over represented 5% of all sports injury hospitalisations.People in this age group had a comparatively higher population-based age-standardised rate of injury (52 cases per 100,000).People aged 65 and over also had a higher mean length of stay in hospitals (4.5 days compared with 2.1 for sports injury as a whole) and, in a relatively high proportion of cases (28%), the injuries they sustained were life-threatening.
