Supraspinatus tendonitis

You may have heard of supraspinatus tendonitis, since it is an increasingly common pathology. Tendonitis it is an inflammation of a tendon, which is the structure through which a muscle gets inserted into the bone, allowing the movement of the joints.

In general, this injury occurs through slight pains when certain movements are performed, such as picking up an object from the back seat of the car, putting on a seat belt or wearing a jacket. These pains can get progressively worsen and night pain begins to arise which prevents sleep or makes it harder to fall asleep.

Another way of this pathology manifests itself is through a very intense pain with no apparent cause, which interrupts sleep and allowing almost no movement.

Tendonitis of the supraspinatus can have several causes from genetic alterations, anatomical differences, postural alterations, presence of calcifications in the tendon zones. It can also originate in our day-to-day life, with the intensive use of the computer, the practice of physical exercise in an inadequate or too intensive way and overweight transportation.

Call in your Doctor and Physiotherapist as soon as the first symptoms appear, do not let a situation drag you away from your comfort and quality of life!
