Calcific Tendinitis of the Shoulder (Degenerative Calcification)

This painful condition occurs when calcium deposits form in tendons of the rotator cuff. These tendons and surrounding tissues in the shoulder become inflamed. This condition typically affects adults. Our doctors at Nucci Medical diagnose the problem by examination, x-ray, and MRI. Treatment includes medication and physical therapy as needed.
