It is often asked by people who are looking to use a convenient type of diet such as those produced by a top diet company like Nutrisystem, just how good the meals actually are. There is really no definitive answer to this question because different people will view the meals in different ways and answers will generally tend to be subjective.
Shoulder Impingement Syndrome What is it?[list][*]Injury to the rotator cuff tendon(s) when there is narrowing between the head of the humerus and the coraco-acromial arch (the arcomion & the coracoacromial ligament attaching to the coracoid process) thus causing subacromial crowding. Your shoulder after injury is too crowded to move without pain.[*]Resulting in micro trauma, ischemia, swelling / inflammation further impingement. The crowding causes more injury and pain.[*]Primarily affects the supraspinatus tendon but can also affect the infraspinatus. These are small muscles in the joint.[/list][list][*]Signs & Symptoms to look out for[*]Pain in lateral upper arm, deltoid insertion, subacromial area (below boney process)[*]Can be from repetitive arm, shoulder use (athletics: tennis, swimming, throwing overhead, computer use, overhead motion)[*]Inability to lower arm from 90 degrees slowly or smoothly with or without pain[*]Painful arc: catching of swollen rotator cuff tendon(s) or bursa[*]Other Possible Diagnosis[*]Torn labrum (cartilage)[*]Instability (due to torn ligament)[*]Rotator cuff / Long head Biceps tendonitis, Bursitis[*]Cervical (neck) pathology: disc / nerve root[*]Adhesive Capsulitis (Frozen Shoulder)[*]Treatment & ManagementResearch studies, using randomized control trials, reveal that treatments consisting of manual therapy, using joint mobilizations, and specific prescribed Physiotherapy exercises are most effective for recovery versus strengthening exercises alone.Treatments are aimed towards restoring joint alignment and mobility by breaking up joint capsule restrictions (scar tissue) and correcting muscle imbalances and kinesthetic & proprioceptive awareness. Activity modification can also aid in the management of or / and further prevention of the pathology from occurring.[/list]
