Shoulder Rotator Cuff Injury – Impingement

A common example of a shoulder injury

Shoulder Rotator Cuff Impingement

  • Sudden onset of pain in the shoulder or increasing over time.
  • Often may be felt with activity but can increase afterwards.
  • Pain with repetitive activity, often with lifting arm out to side or overhead i.e. hair washing, swimming, throwing, overhead mark.
  • Pain may affect sleep.

Shoulder Rotator Cuff Impingement

  • When the arm is held out to the side and away from the body, the shoulder tendons and bursa get squeezed
  • Overuse, repetitive movements
  • Sudden unaccustomed use or change in training
  • Injury – a direct blow or fall
  • Poor posture
  • Poor Upper Body Fitness – Weak Muscles and sloppy joints

The enigma of the shoulder is solved with:

  • A combination of reducing and preventing inflammation.
  • Regaining movement with specific stretching/mobilization techniques.
  • Specific, individualized exercise programs. We made sure that your goals are met in as time efficient manner as possible.
