Shoulder impingement syndrome is a condition seen especially in patients who need to carry weights or whose arms generally need to work above the shoulder. It causes complaints because our muscle (supraspinatus), which passes between the acromion, known as the epaulet bone, and the humerus, known as the arm bone, and tries to lift the arm upwards, is squeezed between these two tissues.
It causes pain especially with movement. In the early periods, it causes short-term pain. But over time, even carrying a bag with the shoulder causes pain.
If diagnosed at an early stage, relief can be achieved with medications, exercises and physical therapy, while surgery may be required in advanced patients due to advanced trials or anatomical differences in the appendix bone. Surgery is performed with arthroscopic methods. It is necessary to use a special bandage for a while after surgery. After short-term exercise therapy, daily life can be returned in the short term.
