In overhead sports like volleyball, the onset of a rotator cuff tendinopathy due to functional overload is a not uncommon observation. Herein, we present the case of a symptomatic calcific tendinopathy involving the supraspinatus tendon with a subacromial impingement syndrome in a young elite volleyball player. Shoulder and supraspinatus tendon evaluation with static and dynamic ultrasonography (US) can assist in the rapid diagnosis of tendinopathy. Thus, sports physicians must be aware of this in order to expedite rapid referral to a musculoskeletal specialist who can perform a point-of-care US examination of the shoulder. This approach to sports pathology potentially improves patient outcomes.
