Rotator Cuff Tendinopathy/Tendonitis
People often describe pinching pain when lifting the arm overhead
There are many causes for rotator cuff issues including prolonged postures with work or sports, strain or injury when lifting and exercising, or even shoulder bursitis and impingement.
Symptoms people often describe can range from difficulty sleeping on the side, feeling of tightness and soreness around the neck and shoulder, and sometimes a pinching pain when lifting the arm overhead.
Recent research suggest exercise, tape, manual therapy and shock wave therapy may be more effective than steroid injections when treating rotator cuff problems.
