Subacromial impingement steroid injection

Hey Mike. I was hoping that you could clear something up for me. I am still trying to visualize the arthrokinematics that you discuss when you state "the humeral head slides anterior slightly causing the undersurface of the cuff to impingement on the inside against the posterior glenoid rim and labrum". If the humeral head is gliding anteriorly, isnt it moving AWAY from the posterior glenoid rim and labrum? How would this ant glide cause an impingement on the posterior aspect? Is it more of a superior humeral head migration that would impinge the post/sup aspect of the labrum and/or the post/sup undersurface of the cuff?? What do you think? Thx.

Subacromial impingement is a condition that causes pain in the shoulder and upper arm. It happens when the tendons of the shoulder joint are strained or injured, or when a spur of bone develops under a flat bone found at the top of your shoulder blade, called the acromion. Either of these conditions can result in the inflammation, pinching or rubbing of any of four tendons (known as the rotator cuff) against the acromion. When this happens it is known as impingement.
