Rotator cuff tendinopathy is degenerative in nature and is the broader term we use to describe tendon issues. This type of problem generally co-exist with bursitis.
Tendonitis of the shoulder is specifically inflammation and has been used as a catch all phrase for shoulder problems and is usually only present in a smaller number of cases.
Classically patients typically report that their shoulder warms up into exercise and then becomes sore again as they finish or cool down if it is tendonitis
