In brief: AC SEPARATION

An AC JOINT separation can be treated conservatively when it is only a type 2 or 3.
Treatment consists of therapy to regain motion after a short period in a sling. If pain persists then sometimes surgical intervention is warranted. Consult an Orthopaedic surgeon for a complete work up. If pain free with full motion this should not disqualify you from the Army. Take care, WilsonShoulder.com .
