A-Z of Injuries

Shoulder - Shoulder Bursitis/Impingement

This can occur due to the subacromial bursa being squashed or impinged between the rotator cuff muscles and the bone, usually during repeated overhead movement.

Signs & Symptoms:

  • Pain or catching sensation on raising the arm up
  • Limited shoulder movements
  • Pain on touching or lying on the shoulder

Physiotherapy aims to reduce the pressure on the impingement by improving postural alignment, relative rest and a gradual home exercise programme to improve function.
