Shoulder Separation

What is it?

A shoulder separation is an injury to the ligaments that connect the collarbone to one of the shoulder bones. A fall on the point of the shoulder is the typical mechanism for a shoulder separation. A direct blow to the shoulder or a fall on an outstretched hand may also produce one. Football and hockey are common sports associated with shoulder separations.
