I now know the upright rows are bad news.

I can not understand how you can do o/h press with an impingement? I can not lift my right arm (impingement side) completely, so really would not even be lifting the weight on that side?? Thanks for the link about A.R.T.

Interesting after reading about the A.R.T. it seems very much like what my PT was doing. He is a manual therapist and spent the bulk of his time doing stretching/massage type treatment from the neck down. He didn't have a lot of faith in meds, band work or heat/ice type treatments. He believes that the whole body is generally out of balance when the shoulder is involved. He did suggest cortisone but only after I complained about the lack of progress.
