Shoulder pain is a common symptom for many types of injuries or conditions affecting the shoulders but a frequent diagnosis given for this type of pain is shoulder bursitis or rotator cuff tendonitis.
Shoulder bursitis and rotator cuff tendonitis are two terms used to describe inflammation within the shoulder joint that causes a set of similar symptoms. Best referred to as “impingement syndrome”, this occurs when the rotator cuff tendons and the bursa that surrounds these becomes inflamed.
Tendonitis and bursitis are different from one another but, in the majority of the cases, impingement syndrome can be a combination of these two conditions.

Impingement syndrome occurs when the top of the humerus, located on the arm, and the acromion, located on the tip of the shoulder blade, become inflamed. The inflammation then leads to a thickening of the tendons and bursa and eventually, these may lead to them becoming pinched.
