What is Shoulder Tendinopathy?

Tendinopathy is an injury to the tendon. It can cause pain, swelling, and limit movement. The injuries can include:

  • Tendonitis-an inflammation of the tendon. (Although this term is used often, most cases of tendinopathy are not associated with significant inflammation.)
  • Tendinosis-microtears (tiny breaks) in the tendon tissue with no significant inflammation.
