In brief: You can't

Ac joint dislocations are graded in severity and range from spraining the joint without dislocation to complete dislocations.
There is no way to relocate the joint and have it stay reduced without surgical repair or reconstruction of the ligaments that hold the joint together. This isn't always necessary and your orthopaedic surgeon can tell you the pluses and minuses of surgery vs no surgery.

In brief: No cure

Traumatic dislocation usually does fine conservatively.
If it is painful can have surgery to repair.
