Shoulder Impingement Syndrome and Bursitis

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)

Treatment

  • Rest and ice
  • Slow return to sport
  • Anti-inflammatory medication when necessary
  • Injection of steroids when necessary
