Shoulder

Arthritis of the shoulder can be painful and limit the range of motion of the arms. Similar to other joints, the wearing away of cartilage due to excessive use or aging causes bone on bone contact, which can be very painful. Often, arthritis is the cause of shoulder pain. However, many shoulder injuries occur in sports or work activities.
