This is a problem we deal with quiet often It can happen when the shoulder joint is not aligned properly. Calcium deposits form on the tendons of your shoulder it will result to Calcific tendonitis of the shoulder. When this happens, it causes a build-up of pressure in the tendon. The tissues around the deposit can become inflamed, causing a great deal of shoulder pain. This condition is fairly common and it most often affects people over the age of 40 and above.

Exercises are prescribed to maintain or regain the your shoulder range of motion and all muscle strength. Postural correction and exercises also help with the healing of the joint.
