What is supraspinatus tendinopathy?

An injury to the tendon in the supraspinatus muscle is referred to as supraspinatus tendinopathy. This muscle helps to keep your shoulder joint stable. This injury has numerous, intricate causes. Some people utilise their shoulders heavily and repetitively throughout the course of their profession. Others might have a posture that exposes the tendon to more stressors. The muscle may also be weak or flexible, both of which increase the risk of injury.
