Abstract

Thank you for your comments regarding the recent publication ‘Clinical Assessment of Subacromial Shoulder Impingement – Which Factors Differ from the Asymptomatic Population?’ Not surprisingly, impingement is a term which does not reflect the underlying cause of all shoulder pain. Hence there is healthy debate regarding alternate terminology (Braman et al., 2013; J. S. Lewis, 2011, McFarland et al., 2013). However, it continues to be a term used throughout the medical literature and in an attempt to embrace this wider audience, until there is agreement about terminology, it was chosen for use in this paper.
