Shoulder Arthritis

What is Shoulder Arthritis?

Arthritis (also called osteoarthritis or degenerative arthritis) involves the swelling and damage of the joint. The condition causes pain and stiffness and limits shoulder joint movement. Causes of degeneration include increased age, everyday use of the joint, repetitive overhead movements, injuries such as fractures or chronic rotator cuff tears, or infection.
