Rotator Cuff Tendonitis is one of the most frequent causes of shoulder pain.
What is it?
Rotator Cuff Tendonitis is the degeneration of the rotator cuff tendons, often due to overtraining or long periods using a mouse or keyboard with bad posture.
Common Signs & Symptoms:
Common symptoms include pain in the shoulder, specifically at night or during movement, pain in overhead movements, and crepitus.
Assessment methods involve evaluating pain levels and location, testing strength and range of motion limitations, analyzing biomechanics and posture, and collecting a thorough patient history to determine the mechanism of injury. An MRI can often confirm the diagnosis.
