Glenohumeral Arthritis

Glenohumeral arthritis affects four basic aspects of the shoulder joint: amount of movement, stability, strength of the surrounding muscles, and smoothness in the joint. Over time the durability of these aspects wears down and gives way to glenohumeral arthritis, which is an age-related disorder.

  • Pain at night interfering with sleep
  • Weakening of shoulder muscles
  • Tenderness and swelling of the joint
