Dr Kevin Yip - What Is Rotator Cuff Tendinitis?

The term tendinitis refers to chronic irritation, inflammation, or tearing of the rotator cuff that occurs as a result of impingement or overuse. Tendinitis bothers some people for a time and then seems to disappear. Their symptoms vary greatly, depending on several factors, the most important of which is how they used the affected shoulder or shoulders.
Some people with tendinitis also develop calcium deposits or abnormal bone growths called bone spur .Both can aggravate tendons, contributing to the weakening, partial, or complete tearing of the rotator cuff.
