Even mild #inflammation of your tendons or bursa can produce redness, swelling, and soreness. Failure to treat the inflammation can lead to bursitis and/or tendonitis. If this occurs, the bursa or tendon can become enlarged and the area between the acromion process and the top of the humerus (the #subacromial space) may decrease causing the bursa or tendon to rub against the acromion. #bursitis
