Subacromial impingement is an extremely common shoulder condition, especially among middle aged individuals. It usually presents with discomfort during overhead reaching, and the pain can sometime be debilitating. Nonsurgical treatment is the mainstay, but certain persistent cases can benefit from surgical subacromial decompression.
