HOW CAN I RELIEVE PAIN FROM A SHOULDER IMPINGEMENT?
Shoulder impingement occurs when the tendons of your muscle stabilisers around your joint get trapped and compress during movements.
This can be caused through repeated movement of your arm (usually under load), causing the tendon to be stressed under the side of the shoulder blade.
This results in inflammation around the area and the individual may experience pain when attempting various arm movements.
The Omotrain guides and centres the arm in the socket so the shoulder maintains proper natural movement, without impacting your mobility.
