What is Shoulder Arthritis Pain?
The shoulder is a ball and socket cushioned by a layer of cartilage. The design of the shoulder joint is such that it sacrifices stability for mobility. As an extremely mobile joint that plays a central role in the action of a major extremity (the arm), the shoulder is at high risk for injury. An injury can involve the ligaments, bursae, or tendons surrounding the shoulder joint, the cartilage, or the bones of the joint.
Causes of Shoulder Arthritis Pain
Sometimes shoulder arthritis pain is the result of injury to another location in your body, usually the neck or biceps. Other causes of shoulder pain include:
- Torn cartilage pr rotator cuff
- Swollen tendons
- Bone spurs
- Over strain
- Pinched nerves
You’re more likely to have problems with your shoulder as you grow older, especially after age 60. This is because the soft tissues surrounding the shoulder tend to degenerate with age.
