Shoulder Arthritis and Osteoarthritis

Pain and limited mobility of the shoulder and arm are common signs of shoulder arthritis. Wear/tear of the shoulder joint and deterioration of the cartilage from injuries and aging can cause shoulder osteoarthritis. While arthritis is not curable, there are treatments that can minimize pain, improve mobility and slow the progression of this disease. Our interventional pain specialists at Ospina Medical offer advanced shoulder arthritis treatments at our clinic in New York City.

Symptoms of Shoulder Osteoarthritis

Osteoarthritis is the most common type of arthritis that affects the shoulder joint. Aging is a factor, as well as injuries, that can cause degenerative issues that cause friction and inflammation in the joint. Symptoms of shoulder osteoarthritis include:

  • Pain in the shoulder when using the associated arm and hand
  • Stiffness in the shoulder joint
  • Limited mobility when rotating or lifting the arm
  • Popping or clicking in joint during movement
  • Swelling around shoulder joint

Arthritis is a progressive disease, worsening as cartilage is worn and there is less synovial fluid to provide protection during movement. To offer pain relief and improve shoulder movement, treatments can slow cartilage deterioration, reduce inflammation and increase lubrication of the joint.

At Ospina Medical, we offer advanced, proactive shoulder arthritis and osteoarthritis treatments at our clinic in Midtown Manhattan. Every patient receives a personalized treatment plan based on their specific symptoms and condition.
