Shoulder Arthritis

The acromioclavicular joint is located at the tip of your shoulder between the collar bone (clavicle) and the shoulder blade (scapula). It develops osteoarthritis very commonly. A bone spur can grow here and can pinch the tendons and bursa that lie beneath the joint resulting in impingement syndrome.

How we treat Acromioclavicular Arthritis

Deep massage with a hand held massage device is very effective. We also want you to ice at home and do the exercises Dr. Schwartz prescribes for you. Chiropractic adjustments get better movement into the joint.
