Shoulder impingement is an awfully painful condition that leads to diminished flexibility. So today I’m going to talk about how exactly to cure shoulder impingement.
But first, I want to offer you a explanation of Shoulder Impingement.
Definition of Shoulder Impingement: also known as subacromial impingement, painful arc syndrome, supraspinatus syndrome, swimmer’s shoulder, and thrower’s shoulder, is a clinical syndrome which occurs when the tendons of the rotator cuff muscles become irritated and inflamed as they go through the subacromial space, then under the acromion.
Often because of the parallels to Shoulder Impingement Syndrome, it is confused with Frozen Shoulder (A.K.A. Adhesive Capsulitis). So despite how the symptoms may present, the problem is totally different.
Definition of Frozen shoulder (adhesive capsulitis): is tightness, ache, and small range of motion in your shoulder. It could happen after a personal injury or overuse or from an illness such as diabetes or a heart stroke. The tissues throughout the joint stiffen, scar tissue formation forms, and shoulder motions become difficult and unpleasant.
So although both conditions present with painful and small mobility, pain with Shoulder Impingement Syndrome is because of the muscle tendon of the shoulder being “pinched” between your ball and socket of the shoulder joint and the bone that lays near the top of the joint.
Whereas Frozen Shoulder is more a function of scar tissue formation surrounding the joint capsule leading to pain and decreased flexibility.
It is essential to differentiate both of these conditions because they’re treated differently. Thus, your outcomes to treatment depends upon an accurate diagnosis.
However, assuming that you have been properly diagnosed with Impingement Syndrome, to be able to properly address this problem, you must have all areas of the problem treated.
- Breaking up the scar tissue – To allow for better joint versatility and mobility
- Stretch out & Strengthen your shoulder muscles – to increase balance and symmetry of the muscles for better joint movement.
- Reset the nerve firing to its normal design – our clinic uses the Trigenics® treatment method that “resets” the nerve firing design to send the correct signals from the human brain to your shoulder and backup again to accelerate curing and proper joint function
- Reduce the swelling – to diminish pain and scar tissue formation development to improve recovery.
By addressing each one of these contributing factors properly, only then is it possible to anticipate properly recovery and permanent results.
