Every post rehab professional has to manage impingement syndrome. Did you know bicipital tendinitis and AC joint sprain have symptoms similar to impingement but are managed differently. The assumption that impingement is the primary culprit with overhead pain or discomfort in the "painful arc" is not always true.
The video clip above reviews the assessment techniques to determine if your client’s symptoms are solely a result of impingement or related to bicipital tendinitis or AC joint involvement. Click the image above to view the clip. Remember, post rehab professionals do not diagnose but having the ability to assess the client and thereby select the appropriate exercise is very important.
