What is Shoulder Impingement?

Shoulder impingement syndrome is also called swimmer’s shoulder or thrower’s shoulder. Is a very common injury to the shoulder and may occur with or without tendonitis/bursitis. With this condition, the rotator cuff tendon is irritated as it passes through the subacromial space. It is more common in the active, aging population and presents as difficulty, weakness and pain with overhead activities and reaching behind the back.
