What is Painful Shoulder & Tendinopathy Treatment?

Tendinopathy is a general term that refers to tendons' swelling, pain, and inflammation. Tendons and bones both move when you tense or relax your muscles, and painful and swollen tendons can make it difficult to play sports, do housework, and other simple tasks.

Experiencing a painful shoulder is a condition that can have many causes and manifests as discomfort in the shoulder's muscles, joints, tendons, and ligaments. Tendinopathy and painful shoulder are both conditions that require medical attention to avoid further complications.
