Possible Shoulder impingement

Dec 14th, 2017

I think I have got shoulder impingement as my right arm feels weakened it
hurts to stretch it above my head, when I put my hand behind my back and
when sleep on my right side .

Do lots of yoga but recently returned to weight training . Feel very
restricted and keen to get back into yoga ASAP. Can you advise what the
treatment would be please ?

Many thanks

Hi Alison

 

Yup – sounds like an impingement, and the best course of treatment going forwards are specific rehab exercises to improve the patency of the muscles that surround your shoulder, shoulder blade and thoracic spine.

 

Hands on manual therapy to your thoracic spine and taping your shoulder may also give temporary relief, and allow your rehab to start at a much higher functional level.
