Type I Shoulder Separation

Type I shoulder separation

A shoulder separation is the partial or complete separation of two parts of the shoulder: the collarbone (clavicle) and the end (acromion) of the shoulder blade (scapula). A type I shoulder separation has a partially torn acromioclavicular (AC) ligament, but the ligaments between the shoulder blade and the collarbone are not injured.
