Shoulder Arthritis

Shoulder arthritis occurs when the smooth cartilage surface of the ball and socket wears, becomes uneven and results in a generally inflamed state of the shoulder joint.  This is usually a gradual process that occurs as a result of genetic predisposition and/or wear and tear occurring over your lifetime.  While the process is gradual, it is curiously common for the symptoms to have a relatively rapid onset. This can be managed (though not cured) with nonsurgical methods initially.  Physical therapy can be helpful in selected instances but typically, activity modification (rest) and anti-inflammatory medication (oral or injected) can minimize symptoms for months to years.  When the disease progresses and/or these measures lose effectiveness, shoulder replacement surgery is a highly successful option.
