Shoulder Impingement

Shoulder impingement occurs when the acromion puts pressure on the underlying soft tissues and is aggravated when the arm is lifted away from the body.

It also known as subacromial impingement, swimmer’s shoulder, thrower’s shoulder, painful arc syndrome and supraspinatus syndrome.

As some of these names suggest certain movements such as lifting of the arm causes the acromion to rub or impinge on the rotator cuff tendons and bursa.

The most commonly involved rotator cuff muscle is the supraspinatus muscle.

This syndrome may lead to bursitis and tendonitis which can result in pain and limited range of motion. As time progresses severe impingement can even lead to a rotator cuff tear.
