Impingement Syndrome



Overuse of the shoulder via repetitive use can leads to shoulder impingement syndrome. Athletes, who routinely exert the Rotator Cuff by extending the arm overhead, may first notice a mild pain in the shoulder. This is likely being caused by the shoulder blade putting repeated pressure on the Rotator Cuff tendon. When this happens, patients sometimes notice their shoulder popping when participating in sports, or other activities where a similar motion is used. Baseball pitchers, volleyball players, tennis players and track and field athletes are commonly diagnosed with shoulder impingement syndrome. It is important that athletes treat impingement syndrome quickly in order to prevent a more severe injury. Dr. Nadel may perform Arthroscopic Surgery to repair the rotator cuff tendon, so that rehabilitation can begin quickly.
