Shoulder Impingement Syndrome
This is a painful pinching of soft tissues in your shoulder. It happens when these tissues rub and press against a part of your shoulder blade called the “acromion.” This can irritate your rotator cuff tendons, and also a soft sac called the “subacromial bursa.”
You’re at risk for shoulder impingement syndrome if you do a lot of overhead motions with your arms. It’s a problem for swimmers, baseball players and tennis players. It’s also a problem for painters and construction workers. It can result from a shoulder injury. And sometimes we don’t know why it develops.
If you have shoulder impingement syndrome, your shoulder may feel tender. It may swell. You may feel pain and stiffness when you lift and lower your arm. You may feel sudden pain when you reach above your head. Your pain may spread from the front of your shoulder to your arm. The pain may get better with rest, but it may still hurt.
Your shoulder may improve with medications and rest. You may benefit from steroid injections, chiropractic adjustments and physical therapy. If these don’t help, you may be a candidate for Regenerative Medicine treatments such as Platelet Rich Plasma injections. A NorTex provider can create a care plan that is right for your needs. Surgical options would be the last resort treatments.
