Acromioclavicular joint injuries are classified most commonly using the 6 grade system described by Rockwood (1998) and takes into account not only the acromioclavicular joint itself, but also the coracoclavicular ligament, the deltoid and trapezius muscles and the direction of dislocation of the clavicle with respect to the acromion.
