Previous innocent shoulder traumas, recurrent shoulder dislocations, subacromial space in people working on their head; The bursa thickening is narrowed by osteophyte protrusions in the bones, it is known that the inflammation (inflammation) that develops with the injuries of the muscle structures in this space improves compression with the healing tissue over the years.
