What is an impingement of the shoulder?
Shoulder impingement causes pain at the front of the shoulder due to compression of the tendon and bursa. Symptoms are commonly reduced range of movement when raising arm, stiffness and pain, especially with overhead movements or lying on it. It can also be associated with rotator cuff tendinopathy and frozen shoulder.
Shoulder Impingement Treatment
Your physiotherapist will assess and test painful movements and muscle strength, use hands-on physiotherapy, shockwave therapy and dry needling. Advise about avoiding or modifying overhead activities. Provide exercise based rehabilitation via our exercise prescription software Salaso.
Physiotherapy and customised exercise rehabilitation is an excellent way of treating shoulder impingement.

Having been dogged with injury I decided to have a full prehab/FMS screen with Colette at Imokilly Physiotherapy and Sports Injury Clinic. My starting score was 12/21 which placed me in a high risk injury bracket but by doing my corrective exercises, I not only played through the whole season un-injured but I also got my score up to 17/21 by the end.
I had spent a significant amount of money elsewhere on unwearable orthotics, before coming to Imokilly Physiotherapy Clinic. The orthotics I got here are by far the most comfortable to wear, and I wouldn't put a pair of shoes on without them!
Having had a long long history of back-pain which was then managed surgically with a dynamic fusion I was nervous about commencing any exercise. My neurosurgeon recommended that I attend a physiotherapist-led clinical Pilates class and I was lucky to find Sarah. Her entire approach is aimed at individualised rehabilitation, namely the individual assessment, tailored exercise programmes, small classes and follow-up emails. The standard of Pilates service is far superior to a fitness-based drop in class, and hence ideal for those with injuries.
Chronic Achilles tendinopathy was limiting my ability to progress my marathon training and I knew that I had to tackle it properly to allow it to heal. Although it was frustrating to step back from training, I am now running painfree and hoping for a marathon PB
