Calcific Tendonitis Sometimes Hurts, Sometimes Doesn't

This article from
just caught my eye.

As my mother seems to be having from what her doctor diagnosed as 'calcification of the tendon', I'm interested.

Here is a quote from the article:

Calcific tendonitis is a condition that causes the formation of a small, usually about 1-2 centimeter size, calcium deposit within the tendons of the rotator cuff. These deposits are usually found in patients at least 30-40 years old, and have a higher incidence in diabetics.

The calcium deposits are not always painful, and even when painful they will often spontaneously resolve after a period of 1-4 weeks.

How interesting. The official version here is that:

A. It comes and goes.

B. Sometimes a calcified tendon hurts, sometimes it doesn't.

So, what is a person to think about this?

First off, anytime a muscle, and therefore it's attached tendon, is too tight, for too long, there's going to be a problem.

It makes sense that too much tension and strain on a tendon is going to make the body try to make itself stronger.

The body shapes itself to the forces placed upon it.

So calcium gets released to help strengthen the tissue, and the body is always cleaning itself up so it eats away at the new stuff.

It makes sense that this Calcific Tendonitis problem comes and goes.

The body is always adapting.

My mom's muscles have been WAY too tight for WAY too long. It makes sense that her tendons are trying to make themselves stronger.

Unfortunately, the body isn't too smart sometimes.

It tries to make itself stronger in ways that ultimately cause it to hurt, which then just makes things continually worse.

How To Avoid Calcific Tendonitis

1. Avoid it! Keep your muscles healthy, relaxed, loose, and strong.

Your body works like a well oiled machine when you attain the above.

2. If you already have some issues with it....See #1.

The body is always in either a Downwards Spiral or an Upwards Spiral.

Whatever direction it's going is the direction that you are helping it go.
