In this presentation, we look at the muscle dysfunction that causes diminished Subacromial space and contributes to this common pattern of shoulder pain.

The supraspinatus tendon is one of the most commonly painful structures in the shoulder. Surprisingly, despite being symptomatic, it’s not the cause of Subacromial Impingement. As with many chronic pain conditions, the causative muscles are rarely symptomatic.

In this presentation, we discuss the root cause, outline relevant assessments to simplify this seemingly complex condition and demonstrate a dynamic, effective, pain-free treatment approach that yields amazing results!
