Shoulder impingement refers to pain that is brought on by lifting the arm overhead and is thought to be associated with dysfunction of the rotator cuff muscles and/or the numerous muscles that surround the shoulder blade. These muscles act to stabilize and rotate the joints of the shoulder complex and can be associated with altered shoulder mechanics when they are not functioning correctly.
This type of pain is typically felt in the top and/or side of the shoulder and is thought to involve structures that lie in the subacromial space including the tendon of supraspinatus, the biceps brachii long head tendon and the subacromial bursa.
If you have pain at the lateral aspect of the shoulder when lifting or reaching overhead, you may be experiencing shoulder impingement. The good news is that training the rotator cuff and muscles that surround the shoulder blade have been shown to help reduce pain and improve function.
This program will teach you exercises to train the muscles that control the shoulder complex and will help reduce pain and improve your overall level of function.
