What is Shoulder Impingement Syndrome?
The shoulder is the most mobile joint of the body. The head of the humerus (arm bone) and glenoid cavity of the scapula (shoulder blade) form the ball and socket joint. The joint is held in place by the rotator cuff tendons and the soft tissue glenoid labrum. Shoulder Impingement Syndrome is a condition where the patients have often pain related to inflammation around the rotator cuff tendon and bursa, which may be caused by poor shoulder mechanics or an abnormal anatomy, which puts them at risk for this condition.
