What tendons are affected in a shoulder impingement?

The primary tendon affected in a shoulder impingement is the rotator cuff tendon, which is a tendon for the teres minor, infraspinatus, supraspinatus, and subscapularis muscles. These muscles contribute to overall joint stability and travel from your shoulder blade to the top of your humerus (arm bone), and are responsible for external rotation, internal rotation, and abduction.
