Shoulder Tendonitis

Shoulder Tendonitis is an inflammation of the tendons in the shoulder area. This inflammation may lead to weakening and later rupture of these tendons. The shoulder tendons, which include the rotator cuff and biceps tendons, help keep the head of the humerus (the upper arm bone) within the shoulder socket

Symptoms of Shoulder Tendonitis

  • Pain associated with arm movement
  • Pain in the shoulder at night, especially when lying on the affected shoulder
  • Weakness with raising the arm above the head, or pain with overhead activities (brushing hair, reaching for objects on shelves, etc.)
