What is 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.

What are the symptoms of calcific tendonitis?

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.
