Expert diagnosis and treatment of acromioclavicular joint (ACJ) injuries
The acromioclavicular joint (ACJ) joins the collarbone to the shoulder blade and is the small hard lump that can be felt at the top of the shoulder. Accounting for around 40% of shoulder sports injuries, dislocations and sprains of the ACJ are commonly seen in overhead and throwing athletes and those engaged in contact sports like rugby that involve falls onto the shoulder and tackling. These injuries are often referred to as a 'sprung shoulder'.
Working with allied health professionals including radiologists and physiotherapists, Mr Sait offers accurate diagnosis of, and effective treatment for, injuries to the ACJ. ACJ injuries are graded based on which ligaments are damaged and the level of this damage, and correct identification of the grade is key to implementing the most appropriate treatment plan. Lower grade ACL injuries that do not involve any dislocation can usually be treated non-surgically with ice, rest and a gradual return to activity, however dislocated ACL joints and sprains that cause long-term pain that does not respond to physiotherapy and corticosteroid injections may require arthroscopic surgery to repair the damaged structures or remove the ACJ without destabilising the shoulder.
