Shoulder Impingement Syndrome

Chapter

Abstract

Several classification systems are used with the impingement syndrome. In 1972, Neer first introduced the concept of rotator cuff impingement to the literature, stating that it results from mechanical impingement of the rotator cuff tendon beneath the antero-inferior portion of the acromion, especially when the shoulder is placed in the forward-flexed and internally rotated position.
