Impingement syndrome


Impingement syndrome is pain caused by a connective tissue (tendon) rubbing against the shoulder blade. It's caused by inflammation from repetitive shoulder activities. Injury and aging are other causes.


Pain may be consistent and increase with lifting or reaching movements.


Rest, medications, and physical therapy can help.
