Pain in this region of the shoulder (where the collarbone meets the shoulder blade, on top of your shoulder) is common following an injury / trauma, such as a rugby tackle or fall off a mountain bike.
Pain can also come on gradually due to wear and tear or arthritis. Pain from an injury can linger for a long time and cause ongoing limitation in function. The pain from wear and tear / arthritis can also be very debilitating. If the pain does not settle with rest, anti-inflammatory medication and standard physiotherapy techniques, a cortisone injection is the most appropriate option.
A cortisone injection is likely to provide immediate and significant relief AC joint pain.
