Shoulder Impingement is a common shoulder issue that typically occurs due to too much wear and tear of the tendons in the rotator cuff. The gliding of the rotator cuff is usually smooth, but when you have an impingement, the bone on the top of your shoulder rubs against the tendon and bursa area. This is why those with shoulder impingement injuries might feel pain from lifting their arms. You may also feel shoulder pain if your rotator cuff tendons are irritated – also known as tendonitis – or if you have bursitis, an inflamed bursa. Wearing a brace to stabilize your shoulder is important for healing if you feel that you have an impingement issue. We carry several shoulder braces and supports that can help your shoulder impingement injury heal.
