Shoulder Impingement

You may experience shoulder pain as the result of a condition known as shoulder impingement syndrome. Pain is caused when the tendons or bursa are impinged upon by the bones. Tennis players or anyone else who engages in overhead activity are more likely to suffer from shoulder impingement syndrome.

Repeated activity is also known to exacerbate the condition. If there is an existing bone or joint abnormality, the risk of suffering from shoulder impingement syndrome is greater. With the potential risk factors associated with shoulder impingement syndrome, seeking a clinical examination is recommended.

Silicon Valley Orthopaedics can provide you with access to an experienced team of orthopedic specialists, including Dr. Nic Gay and Dr. Masi Reynolds. We offer a comprehensive examination and individualized treatment plans that are guided by the patient. If you have lifestyle considerations, such as a job or sport that is impacted by shoulder impingement syndrome, we will attempt to adapt treatment to your needs.
