Osteoarthritis of the Shoulder

Osteoarthritis, also called degenerative arthritis, is a gradual breakdown of cartilage in the joints. Cartilage is a tough, flexible connective tissue that protects the ends of bones in the joints. Osteoarthritis of the shoulder can severely impact a person's lifestyle. Our Orthopedic doctors at Nucci Medical diagnose the problem using physical examination and MRI. Treatment options include physical therapy, injections into the shoulder joint, and a shoulder replacement.
