Impingement Syndrome

Impingement syndrome occurs when the tendons over the shoulder become inflamed from rubbing in the subacromial space. This irritation thickens these tendons, causing more pain.

Symptoms

  • Pain located in the front and side of the shoulder during forceful overhead motions
  • Pain at the back and front of the joint during abduction or ER (external rotation)
