why not ask your physio mate, best to be shown these 1 on 1

He says he dosn't know any exercises yet as he hasn't done much with shoulder injuries but from what he's learnt thats the diagnosis he has given me

As Dr J said, go see a physio. I had an impingement about a year ago and the treatment focussed on fixing my posture, and then strengthening the core muscles in the shoulder joint.

It took about 4-6 weeks of those exercises before the pain was gone completely and I had full range of motion again. Since then whenever I get similar pain in either shoulder I go straight back into those exercises and I usually get rid of it in a day.

I can't recommend seeing a physio more strongly.
