Distal clavicle osteolysis occurs when the bones of the distal clavicle wear down. Distal clavicle osteolysis was first described in 1936 as a condition secondary to acute shoulder trauma. Today, it is described as a sequela of trauma associated with contact sports, falls, and motor vehicle accidents.
This condition can result from trauma or repetitive usage of ligaments, often associated with heavy weight lifting. This condition is common among weightlifters.
As part of the conservative management for this condition, your specialist may also advise you to do a course of physiotherapy. Your physiotherapist will help you properly do your exercises. They teach you good strengthening and conditioning exercises as well.
Stretching and strengthening are going to be your best defence against frozen shoulder. Even if you don’t have a shoulder problem now, the following stretching and strengthening exercises could save you from a major headache in the future.
