The shoulder is one of the most movable joints in the human body. The rotator cuff, a group of four muscles and their tendons, gives the shoulder it’s wide range of motion. When the rotator cuff tendons become trapped under the bony area in the shoulder, the tendons become inflamed or damaged. This condition is called rotator cuff tendinitis or bursitis, which is one of the most common causes of shoulder pain.
