What is Shoulder Tendinitis?

Shoulder tendinitis is caused by inflammation of the shoulder tendons and tiny tears in the surrounding area, this injury typically takes place there is too much pressure or weight placed on the tendon. This overloading can lead to pain, discomfort, and swollen tissue from the tears.
