There are many causes of shoulder impingement syndrome

Working with overhead objects, sports such as baseball or swimming, and manual labor can all lead to shoulder impingement syndrome. Incorrect muscle activation, poor posture habits, inflamed muscles and joints, chiropractic misalignment of the vertebral column and improper ergonomics are also contributing factors that should not be overlooked. Treatment through chiropractic adjustments, massage therapy and physical therapy prescribed by a qualified therapist are helpful for many patients suffering from shoulder impingement syndrome. Regular chiropractic care can help maintain alignment of the spine and assist with general musculoskeletal health. Massage therapy aids in releasing tight muscles that may have caused shoulder impingement syndrome while pulling weak muscles back into proper alignment. Finally, a good physiotherapist can provide exercises to ease tension in and around the shoulder area as well as posture advice tailored to each individual’s needs.

What is shoulder impingement syndrome?

Shoulder impingement syndrome is a common musculoskeletal disorder that involves compression of tissues within the shoulder joint, typically due to inflammation or degeneration of certain muscle tendons. It can cause pain in the upper shoulder area when raising the arm and can limit mobility in the shoulder joint. This condition often affects people with occupations which require repetitive or overhead movements; however, it can also occur as a result of normal wear and tear on the joint over time.

Shoulder impingement syndrome is a musculoskeletal disorder characterized by pain and tenderness in the shoulder. Commonly felt symptoms of this condition include pain when lifting the arm out to the side, difficulty sleeping due to discomfort, aching in the area behind or above the shoulder blade, inflammation around the back and front of the shoulder joint, and difficulty performing daily tasks that require reaching overhead. Additional symptoms of shoulder impingement syndrome may be clicking or grinding noises from within or around the affected joint.

Shoulder impingement syndrome can be an incredibly painful and debilitating condition affecting the shoulder, often manifesting as pain in the arms or hands. Fortunately, there are effective treatments available that can help reduce the pain. Chiropractic treatment is often used for shoulder impingement syndrome, as it works to restore normal movement and functioning of the shoulder joint. Massage therapy can also greatly assist in alleviating symptoms, by using deep tissue techniques to bring relief to tight muscles and trigger points in the shoulder area.
