A common condition of the shoulder often seen in aging adults. It typically results in difficulty reaching up behind the back, pain with overhead use of the arm, and weakness of shoulder muscles. It may be a precursor to rotator cuff tear.
Impingement syndrome is a painful condition that commonly affects the shoulder. As the arm is raised the head of the Humerus bone rotates round in the shoulder joint and the space between it and the ‘Acromion' becomes restricted. This can lead to impingement of the muscles, tendons and bursa that lies within the space.
