Also spelled Rotator Cuff tendinitis, this shoulder tendontitis usually has a slow onset of discomfort and pain in the upper shoulder or arm and/or difficulty sleeping on the shoulder. It can be caused by repetitive trauma e.g. gym work, swimming or overuse injuries. It can also be caused by a one off traumatic episode where the shoulder takes a sudden impact. Shoulder tendinitis with or without calcification is very successfully treated using focused shockwaves with ultrasound guidance during treatment.
