Medical Definition of Acromioclavicular sprain

1. A shoulder injury where the ligaments which stabilise the articulation of the acromion process and the clavicle become torn (sprain). A classic lump deformity is noted on the top contour of the shoulder in more serious sprains. Acromioclavicular separations occur most often after a direct fall onto the shoulder. Severe sprains may result in acromioclavicular dislocation. (15 Jan 1998)
