Rotator Cuff Pain/Impingement

The rotator cuff consists of 4 muscles that run from the shoulder blade and attach to the top of the arm. Impingement occurs when the shoulder blade moves forward in relation to the upper arm. This action pushes on the rotator cuff, specifically the supraspinatus, causing pain. The patient will often report feeling a catching in the shoulder on range of motion. Forward elevation of the arm will reproduce the pain. Decreased range of motion of the shoulder is commonly seen. Manipulation to your upper back and neck with allow you to keep your shoulders farther back and prevent the rotator cuff from becoming impinged.
