Common Conditions and Diagnosis

Acromioclavicular Arthritis

Some joints in the body are more likely to develop problems due to normal wear and tear, or degeneration of the cartilage and joint lining. The type of arthritis that occurs due to degeneration over time is called osteoarthritis. The acromioclavicular (AC) joint, at the far end of the collarbone, is a common joint for developing osteoarthritis during middle age.
