Shoulder impingement and Rotator Cuff injury

Shoulder impingement is often associated with people who work with their hands over their heads or in sports that require overhead motions like swimming. Shoulder impingement often causes pain at the top or front of the shoulder and may involve parts of the rotator cuff or biceps tendon. Pain more at the back of the shoulder can be an irritation of other parts of the rotator cuff or muscles known as the teres minor.
Shoulder impingement is most often treated with conservative method including myofascial release techniques, therapeutic exercises, ice, rest and modification of activities or sport that irritate the shoulder. Usually conservative care is tried for several months and if no response is seen then an MRI can be recommended.
