Calcific Tendinopathy - When crystals, toothpaste, and bone grow inside your tendons!

Calcific Tendinopathy is one of the more unusual conditions we see, and occurs when chalk like substances (hydroxyapatite and calcium phosphate) start developing into crystals within the tendons of the body. Any tendon throughout the body can be affected, but the rotator cuff muscles of the shoulder are one of the most common sites. If this ever has to be removed surgically, it comes out like toothpaste!
