How to treat shoulder impingement syndrome

Today I’m going to discuss about how to treat shoulder impingement syndrome. Shoulder impingement syndrome is a condition where the muscles above the shoulder joint becomes impinged between the ball and socket of the joint and the acromion process (i.e. the bone at the top of the shoulder joint).

This impingement can happen because of the weakness of the deep stabilizing muscles of the joint–in other words, the Rotator Cuff muscles.

These rotator cuff muscles, when working properly, essentially lowers the shoulder joint as you bring up your arm so as to prevent this impingement. However, when these muscles are not firing in the right manner due to weakness or incorrect neurological messages from the brain to the muscles of the shoulder, muscle pinching occurs which then ends up in a cascade of problems.

Such problems comprise of pain, inflammation, scar tissue formation and limited mobility.

With time, this can lead to more problems along with permanent damage (e.g. arthritis).

Nevertheless, if treated correctly, your shoulder impingement syndrome can be rehabilitated and the outcomes can be sustained.


So, how to treat shoulder impingement syndrome?

As a clinic that concentrates on chronic moderate to severe shoulder pain, we realize how upsetting this condition is and how it can significantly impact your life. Dr. Oolo-Austin has designed a very specific procedure to treat frozen shoulder impingement syndrome called the Myoneural Shoulder Impingement Procedure or “MSIP”.

Also, by performing our MCD Procedure for adhesive capsulitis frozen shoulder, we now have the ability to not only fully resolve your frozen shoulder condition, but we can rehabilitate it in a short time.

One of the reasons why our clinic has such a high success rate in dealing with such conditions is not only is our procedures highly advanced and effective, but we are very discerning as to the people that we accept for care.

In other words, when you book your examination with us, you will be placed in our 2-Step Qualification Process and if your condition passes each of our qualification steps, only then will we approve you for care.

But, if we feel that you’re not a candidate and we feel that you will not respond to our care, then we will refer you to a health care professional that is more suited for your condition.

Therefore if you’d like to find out if you’re a candidate for our care, just contact us!
