Rotator Cuff Tendinitis: Symptoms, Causes and Treatments

Rotator Cuff Tendinitis occurs when the tendons and muscles that move the shoulder joint become inflamed and irritated. It generally affects athletes who participate in sports that require they frequently lift their arm above their head. Sports this occurs in include:

  • Swimming
  • Baseball/Softball
  • Tennis
  • Volleyball
  • Track & Field (Javelin)
  • Weight Lifting

Though sports are a common cause of Rotator Cuff Tendinitis, it can be triggered by daily activities that require you lift your arm over your head or by sleeping on the same shoulder every night. There are also times when someone suffers from Rotator Cuff Tendinitis for no known reason.
