5 Most Common Types of Arthritis In Shoulders!

By Dr. Nikita Toshi +2 more

Arthritis can be painful; more so when it affects one of the most vital parts of your body, the shoulder. The most common shoulder arthritis is a painful condition that affects the shoulder hindering movement in the most active and mobile part of the body. Limited motion, steep pain in the joints are some of the symptoms of arthritis. We have listed five types of common shoulder arthritis that can inflict your shoulders and cause restricted movement.

  • Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA): One of the classic types of Arthritis medically, RA is an autoimmune form of arthritis that comes with pain in both shoulders. RA is accompanied by the tenderness of joints, swelling and in extreme cases weight loss and fever.
  • Osteoarthritis: The most common Arthritis, according to some medical reports. This type of Arthritis is caused by wear and tear of the shoulder muscles and is the most common amongst people aged above 50. Joint pain, pain and tenderness are the typical symptoms of Osteoarthritis.
  • Rotator Cuff Arthropathy: A less common type that occurs due to an untreated rotator cuff. Your shoulder has a rotator cuff that connects your shoulder blade to your arm with tendons and muscles. Injury to the rotator cuff causes a tear and if left untreated can cause Rotator Cuff Arthropathy. This type has symptoms such as extreme pain, and fatigue of the muscles.
  • Avascular Necrosis: Avascular Necrosis is a condition that can cause Arthritis when joint tissues in your shoulder are destroyed. This happens when the blood supply to the humerus bone of your body, i.e., the long bone of your shoulder is obstructed, causing bone cells to die. Joint dislocations, steroids, alcoholism, bone fractures can be related to Avascular Necrosis. Usually, this type doesn’t show any symptoms. However, over time the pain ranges from mild to extreme.
  • Post Traumatic Arthritis: Post Traumatic Arthritis, as the name suggests is the result of your injuries. Shoulder injuries, fractures and dislocations are the most common reasons for the unstable nature of the shoulder bones, which causes Post Traumatic arthritis. Fluid build-up in the shoulders, mild-to-extreme pain, are some of the other causes.
