WHAT IS SHOULDER
Arthritis is a joint disease that is a common cause of shoulder pain. As the Clavical (Collarbone)
cartilage that surrounds the shoulder joint wears away, the protective lining
between the bones is lost. When this happens, painful bone-on-bone arthritis
develops. Severe shoulder arthritis is quite painful and can restrict motion.
While this may be tolerated with medications and lifestyle adjustments,
surgical treatment may become necessary.
