Shoulder Arthritis & Osteoarthritis

<< Back to Shoulder

Arthritis is inflammation of the joint. Shoulder arthritis is a progressive disorder, and arthritis pain usually begins gradually and worsens over time.

Osteoarthritis is "arthritis of the bone." It is a common condition and is often linked to aging. It can occur in any bodily joint, including the shoulder joint. Shoulder osteoarthritis is a degenerative joint disease whereby shoulder tissue and cartilage break down incrementally with time and wear and tear.

Osteoarthritis in the shoulder can occur due to advanced age, obesity, past injury, or damage to the shoulder.
