Acromioclavicular (AC) Joint Arthrosis



AC joint arthrosis (another term for arthritis) is a common degenerative condition that occurs with age. Just like arthritis in other joints, in AC joint arthrosis there is narrowing of the space between the bones of the joint, in this case the acromion and the clavicle. Bone spurs develop in this area, and the lining of the joint becomes inflamed.
