This injury is usually caused by an impact to the front of the shoulder or by falling on an outstretched hand.
Signs Shoulder pain, and tenderness are common. Sometimes there is a small bump on top of the shoulder. The severity of the separation is determined with x-rays .
Treatment Conservative treatment is the first option. Resting the shoulder and wearing a sling until the ligaments heal. Ice may help reduce pain and swelling.
