Your shoulders are the location of your body’s most mobile joints. Shoulder joints take a lot of wear and tear and therefore have the potential to become unstable. Shoulder arthritis is one particularly painful condition that affects the shoulder joints.
Arthritis doesn’t only damage your muscles and tendons but also your joints and ligaments. Shoulder arthritis generally causes symptoms such as joint pain and limited range of motion.
There’s more than one kind of arthritis of the shoulders. American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons (AAOS) has identified five distinct forms of shoulder arthritis including Osteoarthritis, Rheumatoid Arthritis, Post-Traumatic Arthritis, Avascular Necrosis and Rotator Cuff Tear Arthropathy.
