Video: Exercise programme for subacromial impingement

The second in our new series of videos demonstrating suitable therapeutic exercises for patients. This shows exercises for subacromial impingement, including isometric external rotation and abduction of the arm against a wall, and scapula retraction and depression.

This video was developed with assistance from the London Orthopaedic Clinic and the Princess Grace Hospital outpatient physiotherapy department.

You should seek advice if the pain persists or exacerbates and GPs should consider referral to a specialist for assessment.
