Shoulder impingement syndrome

In impingement syndrome the pain is greatest at an arm elevation of 90° and decreases once the arm is completely raised. This tape combination with CureTape provides direct pain relief which results in improved arm mobility. The first tape relieves tension in the subscapularis muscle. The subscapularis muscle rotates the upper arm (humerus) inwards (internal rotation). The second tape relieves tension in the descending part of the trapezius muscle. This muscle lifts the scapula along the rib cage (elevation). The last tape facilitates contraction of the ascending part of the trapezius muscle, which allows the shoulder to move downwards (depression).
