My doctor says I have calcific tendonitis in my shoulder, but that I don’t need surgery. It hurts. Anything else I can do?
By Chris Thoene, PT, DPT at Sheltering Arms PT Works
Calcific tendonitis results from the formation of tiny calcium deposits within the tendons of the rotator cuff. These calcium deposits usually resolve within 1-4 weeks. The first line of defense is always conservative non-operative care. Treatment for calcific tendonitis is similar to the treatment of shoulder impingement syndrome. Treatment begins with shoulder stretching, shoulder strengthening, and application of moist heat for pain control. Anti-inflammatory medications are also useful to decrease symptoms.
