How to Treat Internal Impingement of the Shoulder

This month’s Inner Circle webinar is part 2 of my series on internal impingement of the shoulder.  I thought this was such a large subject that I wanted to separate them into two different webinars, one discussing what internal impingement is and how to make an accurate diagnosis.  Click here to view part 1 on the Diagnosis of Internal Impingement.

Once you understand that, you can develop a treatment strategy for internal impingement, which is part 2 of this webinar series.  Here is just a few of the things we covered:

  • The principles of treating the overhead athlete with internal impingement
  • What to do initially and what to focus on before progressing their program
  • What to do instead of aggressively stretching the shoulder
  • The one key are to focus on when treating internal impingement
  • When to know when to begin throwing and when to begin pitching

Internal Impingement – What it is and How to Diagnose

This month’s Inner Circle webinars discussed a one of the most requested topics to date and featured a TON of people online live!  We’ll cover:

  • What is internal impingement?
  • The difference between internal and subacromial impingement
  • Anatomical, biomechanical, and pathological reasons for developing internal impingement
  • What do athlete’s that have internal impingement feel?
  • The #1 test to perform to diagnose internal impingement
  • What else you should look for on examination to develop the best treatment program

The topic is so big, I need to break it down into 2 parts.  This first part will cover the etiology and diagnosis.  I will follow this up in the upcoming months with an entire webinar dedicated to how to treat internal impingement.
