What are the risk factors of Shoulder Impingement?

Overusing the shoulder in repeated activities is one of the major risk factors for shoulder impingement such as painting, lifting, swimming, playing tennis, and overhead sports. Other risk factors include bone and joint abnormalities in the individual.

If not treated at the right time, the rotator cuff tendons can start to thin out and tear causing permanent damage to the shoulder.
