Shoulder Impingement

Prevention

Shoulder impingement is more common with repetitive overhead activities
eg. painting.

Avoidance of this movement can help prevent shoulder impingement.

Be sure to warm up properly and stretch your shoulder before such activities as throwing, playing tennis, or swimming. If your shoulder starts to hurt during these activities, you may need to slow down or stop until the pain goes away.

Physiotherapy can help train your shoulder to perform proper movements by developing even strength in your shoulder muscles
