calcified tendinitis and bursitis

2 Replies

I had calcified tendinitis and bursitis diagnosed by a doctor who gave me steroids in both shoulders. I couldn't lift my arms more than six inches to the sides. That didn't work for me. I went to an acupuncturist for thirty days of treatment and haven't had a problem since. That was thirty years ago!

How did this problem start? Do you have this problem in your hip?

Frozen shoulder, also known as adhesive capsulitis, is a condition characterized by stiffness and pain in your shoulder joint. Signs and symptoms typically begin gradually, worsen over time and then resolve, usually within one to three years.

The main symptoms of a frozen shoulder are pain and stiffness that make it difficult or impossible to move it. If you have frozen shoulder, you'll likely feel a dull or achy pain in one shoulder. You might also feel the pain in the shoulder muscles that wrap around the top of your arm.

Frozen shoulder is the result of inflammation, scarring, thickening, and shrinkage of the capsule that surrounds the normal shoulder joint. Any shoulder injury can lead to a frozen shoulder, including tendinitis, bursitis, and rotator cuff injury (rotator cuff syndrome).

The condition occurs more commonly in people with diabetes and in people who've kept their arm immobilised for a long period of time.

Symptoms may start gradually and resolve within one or two years.

Treatment involves stretching and sometimes injecting corticosteroids and numbing medication into the joint capsule. In some cases, surgery is used to loosen the joint capsule.
