Effective treatment for calcific tendonitis
There are many causes of calcific tendonitis
Calcific tendonitis typically affects middle-aged adults and can be painful when aggravated. Although calcific tendonitis can have a wide range of causes, chiropractic adjustments and massage therapy are often recommended to manage its symptoms. By working with a qualified chiropractor or physiotherapist, you can relax any tightness in the affected area while strengthening it. This can also help restore movement and reduce pain associated with calcific tendonitis.

Calcific tendonitis is a musculoskeletal condition characterized by the abnormal formation of calcium deposits in a person’s tendons. It typically develops in the rotator cuff, which is a group of muscles and tendons that attach to the shoulder and provide support. Those affected by calcific tendonitis often experience pain and decreased range of mobility around the affected area. Additionally, over time, persistent tendon friction can lead to further muscle damage or even permanent joint instability if left untreated.
Calcific tendonitis is a type of tendinopathy, or overuse injury that affects tendons, resulting in painful symptoms. The most notable symptom of calcific tendonitis is a tender lump located near the affected joint that may be visible through the skin. Pain often increases when pressure is applied to the area and can eventually limit your range of motion. Tendon pain usually worsens with activity, such as moving or stretching the affected muscle group – this is known as an “activity-induced exacerbation”. Other accompanying pain symptoms may include throbbing, shooting, burning and discomfort at rest.
Treatments for calcific tendonitis can vary based on severity of the condition, but chiropractic adjustments, massage therapy, and physical therapy are all beneficial treatments. Through chiropractic care, restrictions in the joints and soft tissues surrounding the area can be reduced and improved. Massage therapy helps to break up calcium deposits while also increasing circulation to relax tight muscles and reduce inflammation. Finally, physical therapy with an experienced therapist can help improve range of motion, increase strength and reduce muscle imbalances that may have led to the development of calcific tendonitis. All three treatments used together may significantly reduce symptoms associated with this condition.
Shoulder pain is something that people struggle with every day, but why does it occur in the first place? Common causes of shoulder pain can include AC joint sprain, AC joint strain, long head of biceps tendinopathy, rotator cuff tear, rotator cuff tendinopathy, shoulder bursitis, shoulder impingement syndrome, shoulder instability, shoulder labral tear, shoulder osteoarthritis, and shoulder slap lesion. It’s important to be aware of these potential sources of discomfort in order to reduce your risk for injury and take preventative actions that will keep your shoulders healthy and happy. Consultation with a qualified professional at CARESPACE can help determine the best solution to alleviate any discomfort experienced.

I have been receiving treatment from Dr. Webster for a few months and I've been feeling much better. I had sever knee, shoulder and back pain. I couldn't squat or do push ups without my joints screaming at me. But now I'm not able to only do all those but also feel stronger. The most important piece is that she listened and took my history of many injuries into consideration. And as a dancer, I couldn't have asked for a better chiropractor who not only helped me feel better but also understood my needs.
I also brought my grandmother to Dr. Torreiter for her back pain for acupuncture. He was extremely kind, understanding, compassionate and everything that I could ask for. He made her feel comfortable and explained every step during each treatment. He made sure that she was well taken care of and also made other important referrals that lead to her recovery.
So far I have referred my whole family to these two wonderful individuals and everyone's experience has been equally great. Thanks to them we all are doing much better!
