I hold my hands up and admit that I used to think it was…
And worse still, I admit I gave it this diagnosis to 100’s of patients and the athletes that I worked with.
Not only is this diagnosis label highly inaccurate…
Giving impingement as a diagnosis is actually detrimental to your treatment plan and results in reduced adherence to a patients home exercise programme!
If you understand this it is a one way ticket to quicker and more consistent results, even with tricky shoulder and hip cases.
In this new podcast I’ll show exactly why ‘impingement’…
– Is NOT a diagnosis and what it actually is
– Why it is lazy label to use and what you should focus your and your patients attentions on instead
– Why it should never be used and how to give a diagnosis to a subacromial bursa or cuff issue (the injuries that you would normally call ‘impingement’) without a mention of the word impingement.
Enjoy the show!
