Abstract

Shoulder rotator cuff impingement syndrome is treatable-nonoperatively or operatively if prompt diagnosis and treatment are undertaken.Proper evaluation includes a good history, physical examination, and appropriate diagnostic testing. The main goal in treatment is to return patients to their previous activity level, and the prognosis usually is good.Treatment usually is successful with nonoperative means, but if necessary operative intervention is successful with correct patient selection.
