Dear All I'm a keen swimmer and have all the symptoms of impingement - general shoulder pain, and pain putting my arm above my head. I've been having physical therapy for about 5 months, involving massage, stretching and strengthening exercises. I've also stopped swimming to rest the shoulder, But it just never seems to go completely - I might be free from pain for a few weeks, and then it seems to start again. Does anyone have similar experiences? Any advice? How long does this sort of thing usually take to recover? Thanks a lot Philly

Is there a maximum number of cortizone shots that can be injected into one joint? I have heard that more than three injections can cause deterioration of the joint. Is there any validity to this?
