Your rotator cuff is the group of four muscles that cause your should joint to rotate internally (toward your trunk) and externally (away from your trunk). When the rotator cuff muscles and other muscles associated with them get out of balance, either from under- over- or misuse, they begin to cause pain in your shoulder region.
Tendinopathy refers to the tendons that attach rotator cuff muscles to the humerus bone and the suffix “opathy” meaning disease or disorder. Joint pain associated with muscle overuse often manifests in the tendons of the muscles that act on a particular joint.
