What Are the Symptoms of Rotator Cuff Tendonitis?

Also referred to as impingement syndrome, rotator cuff tendonitis impacts the tendons and muscles that secure the shoulder joint. Symptoms of rotator cuff tendonitis are often mild and easily treatable at first, but may progress to include:

  • Pain and swelling around the front and side of your shoulder
  • Marked shoulder stiffness
  • A clicking noise when raising your arm
  • Pain that worsens when raising or lowering your arm
  • Pain that worsens when reaching behind your back
  • Pain that keeps you up at night

What Does Rotator Cuff Tendonitis Treatment Involve?

Each individual’s ideal course of rotator cuff tendonitis treatment will vary according to factors such as age, activity levels, and overall health. Common treatment approaches include:

  • Temporarily avoiding strenuous activities
  • Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory medications (NSAIDs)
  • Physical therapy
  • Anti-inflammatory injections
  • Arthroscopic shoulder surgery, in advanced cases

I was able to get a office visit on short notice. It seemed to be a very busy day. Rebecca took the time to listen to all of my issues and discuss a plan for additional treatment. I have always been impressed with her knowledge and bed side manner.

Dr. Yakkanti did my knee replacement in June. He is an excellent surgeon with a great bedside manner. I have recovered nicely and plan to have my other knee replaced within the next year. I would highly recommend Dr. Yakkanti to anyone thinking about knee replacement!
