Tendinitis of the rotator cuff

The shoulder consists of three joints (glenohumeral, acromioclavicular and sternoclavicular), along with four muscles (subscapularis, supraspinatus, infraspinatus and teres minor). These muscles, known as the rotator cuff, are responsible for the stability and rotation of your shoulder.

Hot zone

A hot zone is a section of a facility (sometimes an entire facility or even a city district) where there is a high risk of contamination by patients with an infectious disease. All individuals entering a hot zone must respect appropriate protective measures. By analogy, “cold zone” and “warm zone” are used to refer to areas where there is no infected individual or only individuals suspected of having an infection.
