Shoulder Impingement Syndrome

This is a painful pinching of soft tissues in your shoulder. It happens when these tissues rub and press against a part of your shoulder blade called the "acromion." This can irritate your rotator cuff tendons, and also a soft sac called the "subacromial bursa." Our orthopedic doctors at Nucci Medical diagnose the problem by physical examination and MRI. Treatment includes physical therapy, medication and injections, and occasionally surgery.
