shoulder impingement
Is caused by a mechanical dysfunction such as bursa, AC joint, acromion, humerus or rotator cuff/supraspinatus tendon beneath the coracromial arch. Clinically, the pectorals, posterior capsule and upper trapezius muscles are tight. Focus on training clients with SI, performing posterior capsule stretch, scapular retraction(mid row exercise) and external rotation strengthening to name a few.

The rotator cuff is part of the shoulder comprised of four dynamic muscles. These include the supraspinatus, infraspinatus, teres minor and subscapular is muscles. Research shows that the supraspinatus is biomechanically weaker and has less blood supply as compared to the other muscles of the rotator cuff. Making it susceptible to injury.
