Shoulder Bursitis and Impingement Pain

Common Injuries we see

People often describe pinching pain when lifting the arm overhead

There are many causes for shoulder bursitis and impingement pain including prolonged postures with work or sports, rotator cuff strain or injury, or even weakness of the muscles.

Symptoms people often describe can range from difficulty sleeping on the side, feeling of tightness and soreness around the neck and shoulder, and sometimes a pinching pain when lifting the arm overhead.

Recent research suggest exercise, tape, manual therapy and shock wave therapy may be more effective than steroid injections when treating shoulder bursitis and impingement pain.
