Shoulder Tendonitis

Have an Injury?

What shots cause Tendonitis?

If vaccines are not administered properly in a pharmacy or doctor’s office, it can result in adverse reactions like shoulder injuries. For example, flu shots and other vaccines can lead to shoulder tendonitis – an upper arm condition induced by the inflammation of tendons connecting muscles to bone.

If you suffered shoulder tendonitis caused by a flu shot or other vaccine, you could seek compensation from the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program. This federal program provides support for certain vaccine injuries.

Tendonitis is a painful and often debilitating condition that has the potential to make even simple daily tasks difficult. Fortunately, knowledge of which shots are associated with tendonitis can help you take proactive steps to prevent it from happening.

Vaccine-related shots commonly associated with tendonitis include rabies and tetanus-diphtheria-pertussis (TDAP). The good news is that following the proper technique when administering these shots can dramatically reduce one's risk of developing tendonitis as a result. Of course, if symptoms do arise, seeking medical attention promptly is critical to ensure proper treatment and minimize the severity of any effects.

How does shoulder tendonitis occur from a vaccine?

Various vaccines can be injected into a person’s deltoid. The vaccine can penetrate the sensitive tendons within if the injection is too high on the shoulder. If a vaccine penetrates the thick cords of tissue (tendons) that attach muscle to bone, or other sensitive areas like the bursa sac, it can cause an inflammatory response. The inflammation can present in the bursa (Bursitis), tendons (Tendonitis), or around the Rotator Cuff. Inflammation then causes pain. If any of the below arise after receiving your vaccine, it is likely the vaccine caused Tendonitis:

  • Pain when moving the arm out to the side or behind
  • Tenderness of the front and upper parts of the shoulder
  • Swelling and stiffness

Diagnosing and Treating Shoulder Tendonitis Injuries

Shoulder tendonitis injuries can be painful and debilitating, but with proper diagnosis followed by an effective treatment plan, these common conditions can be managed effectively. Diagnosis is key to properly determining the origin of the shoulder pain and ruling out other musculoskeletal conditions. Common tests used to confirm the diagnosis include X-ray imaging and physical examinations to assess mobility therapy.

After confirming the diagnosis of shoulder tendonitis, a comprehensive treatment should be established to reduce inflammation and strengthen muscle groups around the affected joint. Additionally, physiotherapy can help boost your range of motion and reduce discomfort in the shoulder region.

How We Can Help With Your Shoulder Tendonitis Claim

Injuries from vaccines can change your life, and you may be qualified to receive financial compensation through the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (VICP).

After lawsuits against vaccine companies and healthcare providers in the 1980s threatened to reduce U.S. vaccination rates and cause a resurgence of vaccine-preventable diseases, the VICP was created. At My Vaccine Lawyers, our team can help you file a claim and guide you through the entire process with the VICP if you have suffered from vaccine-related injuries.
