Mobilization to Improve Abduction of the AC Joint

The AC joint can be a very stubborn (and stiff) joint that wreaks havoc in patients with shoulder limitations or pain.  There are many ways to mobilize or manipulate this joint to restore movement.  However, I haven’t really seen any mobilizations that specifically work to improve congruency of the joint and/or abduction range of motion.  This video explains my thought process and how I’ve worked to improve these two things on a patient with previous history of grade II separation.

Enjoy!
