Shoulder Impingement



Shoulder impingement is the most common issue for pain in the front of your shoulder. It is caused by a mechanical pinching of one of the tendons on the shoulder as it rotates upwards. There is usually a postural component as well which causes the ball of the shoulder to sit too far forward and too far upwards which makes less space as the ball rolls in the socket. This home program will help strengthen your rotator cuff and you scapular stabilizers to hold the ball more congruently in the socket and help prevent impingement issues in the front or top of the shoulder.

Disclosure: These programs are not meant to be a diagnostic or treatment as each person and each injury is different. This plan is best used as an educational guide on typical exercises that can help a variety of conditions. Not all of these exercises are necessary for each injury, and some may actually be harmful. You should always consult your healthcare provider or physical therapist to ensure that you have the best program for you. Please do not continue these exercises if symptoms worsen, and each exercise should be moderately challenging and never unsafe or painful.
