Síndrome de choque

Cuando los tendones quedan atrapados bajo el acromion, el arco óseo rígido del omoplato, pueden causar dolor en el hombro llamado síndrome de choque. Los tendones resultan comprimidos, dañados e inflamados, llevando a que se presente tendinitis del maguito rotador. Esto puede ocurrir por el desgaste general y desgarro a medida que la persona envejece o por la actividad que requiere el uso constante del hombro, como el lanzamiento en el béisbol, o por una lesión.
