Background: Rotator cuff tendinopathy, calcific tendinitis, and sub acromial bursitis are all included in the spectrum of sub acromial space disorders known as the Sub Acromial Impingement Syndrome (SIS). The rotator cuff tendon is particularly vulnerable to damage in activities that need frequent or prolonged movement of the arms above. Aim of study: Experiment on individuals with sub acromial impingement syndrome to see how extracorporeal shock wave treatment (ESWT) affects the sub acromial region. Materials and Methods: Shockwave treatment was administered to twenty patients with an average age of 36.46 (+6.68) years old. There were three thousand shocks administered, with 1000 administered during each of the three sessions, which were spaced two weeks apart. The patients worked in slaughterhouses and played sports that required them to play on their heads. Ultrasonography was used to check how well the shoulder worked before and after treatment, as well as the space under the acromion in adduction and abduction. Results: All of the patients' shoulder function and subacromial space in adduction and abduction improved significantly. Conclusion: Extracorporeal shock wave therapy is a good way to help people with subacromial impingement syndrome improve their shoulder function and subacromial space in adduction and abduction.
