Shoulder Arthritis

Shoulder Arthritis

Arthritis is a painful condition that affects the joints. It can affect the shoulders as well.

What is shoulder arthritis?

The type of arthritis that affects the shoulders is osteoarthritis.

Osteoarthritis is a worsening disease, otherwise known as degenerative arthritis, that gradually breaks down the cartilage in the joint. The cartilage is a strong and versatile connective tissue that cushions the ends of bones and joints. A shoulder with osteoarthritis of the shoulder may greatly affect a person’s way of life.

What are the symptoms of shoulder arthritis?

Indications of osteoarthritis of the shoulder include stiffness, swelling, and pain in the bone joints. The movement will aggravate the experience. The shoulder may exhibit a much tender feel as pressure is applied. A grating sensation during arm movements may be experienced by the patient, along with stiffness of the arm which impedes the arm’s movement.

What causes shoulder arthritis?

Osteoarthritis frequently erupts due to the deterioration of the cartilage over a period of time. This can also be brought about by a painful accident of the joint.

Osteoarthritis of the shoulder is a common occurrence among women, older people, and those whose work involves increased tension on the shoulder. People with a particular ailment, bone malformation, or genetic susceptibility are considered high-risk patients.

How is shoulder arthritis treated?

Treatment is dependent on the disease's anatomical condition of the patient. Medical care is bespoke and prescribed, depending on the state of the knees. Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory prescriptions, corticosteroid injections, and of course physical therapy will be prescribed during the early stage of the condition to help remove the tension on the shoulders. Should this care plan fail and manifestations persist, a surgical solution will be offered to mend the joints.
