What is Rotator Cuff Tendinitis?

Rotator Cuff Tendinitis or Tendonitis is an inflammatory condition which affects the tendons of the muscles that surround the shoulder joint. These muscles are called the rotator cuff group which is made up of 4 muscles called the Supraspinatus, Infraspinatus, Teres Minor and Subscapularis. Their main function is to support the shoulder joint while it makes all the necessary movements without the joint popping out of the shoulder socket (Glenoid).

Reason

Rotator Cuff injuries are more common in people over 40, athletes, and people whose work requires repetitive overhead lifting. Rotator Cuff Tendinitis can be successfully treated with a constructive treatment plan.
