In brief: No
Shoulder tendinitis is a vague diagnosis.
Shoulder pain in young people can be related to many different things such as shoulder instability, biceps tendinosis, rotator cuff tendinosis or tears and slap lesions. While shoulder tendinitis in young people generally resolves with conservative care it can also progress and worsen depending on the actual diagnosis.
