I read on {1}:

Calcific tendonitis or hydroxyapatite deposition disease is a common disorder and the site of occurrence is around the shoulder mainly within the supraspinatus tendon and at a location 1.5-2 cm away from the tendon insertion on the greater tuberosity. Less common locations include the wrist, elbow, deltoid insertion, gluteus maximus, knee and neck.

Why do calcific tendinopathies mostly affect the supraspinatus tendon?
