A case was reported at this private Chiropractic Office of a 50 year old white female with acute pain in the right anterior shoulder. Physical, neurological, and roentgenologic examinations revealed a diagnosis of calcific tendonosis of the right rotator cuff muscles with resultant Sub-Deltoid bursitis. A conservative regimen of therapy was instituted which included immobilization, physical therapy, manipulation, and eventually rehabilitative exercises.
