Do you experience a “catching” sensation when raising your arm overhead? Have you noticed a gradual increase in discomfort/pain in your upper arm that becomes worse with increase in activity? Does your shoulder pain occasionally wake you at night? If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, you may be suffering from a common diagnosis known as shoulder impingement.
Shoulder impingement is a treatable dysfunction that usually involves both structural and functional impairments. Three main risk factors associated with developing shoulder impingement include anatomy, weakness of rotator cuff muscles causing abnormal shoulder mechanics, and restriction of available motion.
Here at JGPT, we are highly skilled in immediately identifying the combination of impairments that are contributing to your pain and eliminate them through functional mobilizations, individualized home exercise program, and patient education. After just one treatment with us, our patients report positive reduction of their pain during functional daily activities.
