Re: Impingement Syndrome?

I had impingement that went on for 9 months before I had decompression surgery. It was from overuse in karate/martial arts. I had 4 cortisone shots before surgery and tried PT. Nothing worked. I have had no issues since the surgery, but I do not do karate anymore either. The surgery wasn't too bad and I'm glad I finally opted to have it done. I looked like a T-Rex for months before surgery because I had no ROM in my shoulder.
