Shoulder joint arthritis

Not as common as hip and knee arthritis. Mostly affects older patients. Various factors can contribute to its development such as previous trauma or fracture of the upper end of the humerus. Neglected chronic rotator cuff tears also leads to arthritis. Replacement with a metal joint gives relief and improvement of function.
