Shoulder impingement syndrome, also known as “swimmer’s shoulder,” is a type of rotator cuff disorder that causes pain and disability most commonly to swimmers. According to the National Center for Biotechnology Information, swimmer’s shoulder incidence occurs among 70% of swimmers, but it is more prevalent among the 35% who undergo hardcore training.
Of all the joints in the body, it is the shoulders with the most flexible range of motion. However, it’s also more prone to injuries even if the rotator cuff does not bear weight. The rotator cuff is composed of a muscle group that controls the smooth and flexible movement of the shoulders. This muscle group also stabilizes the ball within the socket of the shoulder joints while supported by the bursa sac.
