Hello, guys and gals.
i am new to this site.
i have been having upper back problems, isolated to my right side for a long time.
a chiropractor has just recently told me that I have "shoulder impingement syndrome."
what is known:
*my upper trapezius in my right shoulder is missing.
*on my xray, my numeral head is high, close to the ac joint.
*my right shoulder has dropped, roughly an inch or so.
*i cannot reach my right arm as far up on my back as I can my left.
*any overhead motion hurts, as I am a plumber by trade/career.
any info would be greatly appreciated. What I am concerned with most, is the drooping right shoulder and displacement of my upper trapezius. The ligament in the upper trapezius on my right side, feels as if it isn't there any more.
