Do you suffer from Shoulder Tendonitis, Bursitis, or Impingement?

What are Shoulder Tendonitis, Bursitis and Impingement?

Shoulder tendinitis, shoulder bursitis, and impingement are actually all closely linked.

Tendonitis is the inflammation of a tendon. In the shoulder, tendinitis usually affects the tendons of the biceps or rotator cuff as a result of pinching from surrounding structures.

When tendinitis affects the rotator cuff, the inflamed tendon may swell and get trapped beneath the acromion, making shoulder movement extremely uncomfortable. This is called shoulder impingement.

Bursitis is inflammation of the bursae. The bursae are fluid-filled sacs found next to tendons or large joints. They are used to make movement easier, inflammation often occurring in conjunction with tendonitis.
