Fracture of Acromion is Uncommon because of its unique anatomical structure and location, usually it heals by itself with conservative therapies intervention and a subject?s shoulder will get back to its functional performance without surgical approach; however, rare cases would not recover due to pseudoarthrosis is taking a place, surgical avoidance plus ongoing on noninvasive tools to manage acromion pseudoarthrosis with application of extracorporeal shockwave therapy medium to high intensity is my motivation to report this condition. Likewise; I have not encountered a published literature using extracorporeal shockwaves therapy for acromion specifically. A case of 36 old male active and alert has been referred to our physical therapy outpatient clinic for high density extracorporeal shockwaves therapy managing the acromion pseudoarthrosis after been going on ROM and strengthening rehabilitation program for 7 months. After having 6 sessions of ESWT, the acromion nonunion fracture got unified with complete patient condition recovery, the pain is abolished, ROM is full with restoration of functional abilities.
