From another thread -

The space under the acromion is more confined if the upper arm is high.

Good luck.
Nah, I wrecked my right shoulder from ice hockey ie(impact) checking without wearing my shoulder pads in practice. I ripped the tendon right off the bone talk about 72 hrs of pure pain!! I wrecked my left shoulder from 12 hrs a week of clay court tennis. Plus my acromion is a type 3 so there was never alot of room to start with.
