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.
