Are your symptoms like those below?
If you have answered YES to ANY of the above, you may be suffering from:
SHOULDER IMPINGEMENT SYNDROME
The shoulder is a ball and socket joint which is stabilised and supported by a group of 4 muscles called the rotator cuff. Impingement syndrome is when one or more of the rotator cuff tendons (where the muscle tissue inserts into the bone) become trapped in the shoulder joint. Common causes of impingement syndrome include repetitive overhead use of the arm (tennis, weights, swimming, cricket etc), or a traumatic incident such as a fall on the shoulder or outstretched arm. Repeated impingement can lead to inflammation and thickening which in turn can lead to more trapping of the inflamed tendon.
