What is shoulder impingement?

Shoulder impingement is becoming more common nowadays. Shoulder impingement literally means a shoulder collision but in daily life it is translated into a shoulder restraint. It can feel painful when lifting the arm.

The shoulder consists of a shoulder blade which extends above the head of the upper arm, this is also called the shoulder roof. Between the shoulder roof and the shoulder head there is an opening between which tissue (bones, muscles, tendons, mucus, hairstyles etc.) run.
In the case of a shoulder impingement, the space between the shoulder head and the shoulder roof is reduced, so that a clamping takes place. This can be experienced as painful when lifting the arm. Often it is painful if the arm makes an angle of 90 0 degrees.

What causes a shoulder impingement?

There are several causes that can cause a cling to the shoulder.

  1. It is possible that the space between the shoulder roof and the shoulder head is reduced due to a bursitis. As a result, the space between the shoulder roof is reduced and clamping can take place.
  2. The structures, such as tendons or muscles, can also be swollen or inflamed, reducing the space under the shoulder roof. As a result, they are more likely to get trapped when lifting the arm.
  3. The space between the shoulder head of the shoulder and the shoulder roof can be reduced.

Causes shoulder impingement

One of the main causes, which can lead to impingement in the shoulder, is overload. If at work much has to be done over the head, this can cause irritation to the shoulder. If the complaint does not pass and a lot is levied and a lot has to be paid, the complaints do not get any less. The more movement in the painful shoulder, the worse the overload becomes.

Symptoms of shoulder impingement

  • Abduction (shoulder levy) does very well from an angle of 90 0
  • Pain on the outside of the shoulder


With a shoulder impingement, the tissue between the shoulder and head of the shoulder had irritation. A treatment is aimed at reducing inflammation and pain. In addition, the mobility and muscle function of the shoulder is improved and strengthened. It is important to alternate calm and light movement. It is important that you move within the pain threshold (do not abduct above 90 degrees). A brace is not always applicable for this. The only applicable brace which ProBrace can advise you is a dynamic brace. A brace where the shoulder has full freedom of movement but pushes the shoulder cup inwards. Pressing the shoulder cup inwards is necessary for a good recovery of Shoulder Impingement.

That is why ProBrace can advise the Bauerfeind Omotrain shoulder brace.
