These four muscles and their tendons are: The Subscapularis – (front of Scapula) internally rotates the shoulder, The Supraspinatus – (top of Scapula) abducts the shoulder; and two muscles, The Infraspinatus – (back of Scapula, above Teres Minor) AND The Teres Minor – (back of Scapula, below the ...
Abstract. Over a 1-yr period, 102 patients with a clinical diagnosis of either medial or lateral epicondylitis (tennis elbow) or rotator cuff tendonitis were treated with topical applications of dimethyl sulfoxide (DMSO). A double-blind controlled study was carried out on these patients in the private practice of an orthopaedic surgeon to determine the efficacy of this material in the treatment of these two common clinical conditions.

Surgery may be required for the most severe cases of Tennis Elbow. Rotator Cuff Tear: One of the most common problems of the shoulder, a Rotator Cuff Tear refers an injury to one or more of the four Rotator Cuff muscles. The situation can range from a slight tear to fully tearing the tendon from the bone.
While tendonitis can occur in any of your body’s tendons, it’s most common around your shoulders, elbows, wrists and heels. Some common names for various tendinitis problems are: Tennis elbow; lateral epicondylitis. Golfer’s elbow; medial epicondylitis. Pitcher’s shoulder; rotator cuff tendonitis.
Tennis Elbow is the result of overuse of the muscles on the external or lateral side of the elbow. Conversely, Golfer’s Elbow occurs on the internal or medial side of elbow. The mechanism of injury, for both conditions, occurs in the same way as previously mentioned for rotator cuff trauma.

The arm is kept in the shoulder socket by the rotator cuff. The rotator cuff is a group of four muscles that surround the shoulder joint. These muscles work to provide rotation and elevate the arm and give stability to the shoulder joint. There is a bursa (sac) between the rotator cuff that allows the muscles to glide freely when moving. When rotator cuff tendons are injured or damaged, the bursa can becomes inflamed and painful. Irritation or injury can cause tendons of the rotator cuff to ...
