The lateral end of the clavicle articulates with the acromion of the scapula to form the acromioclavicular joint. An incomplete articular disc is present within this synovial joint. A thin, loose capsule surrounds the acromioclavicular joint, which is reinforced superiorly by an acromioclavicular ligament, but its chief strength and support is derived from the trapezoid and conoid ligaments, which together form the coracoclavicular ligament. The articulation of the glenoid cavity on the neck of the scapula with the head of the humerus forms the glenohumeral joint.
