Three major types of arthritis can affect your shoulder.
Osteoarthritis: A degenerative condition that destroys the smooth outer covering of bone. It usually affects people over 50 years of age.
Rheumatoid arthritis: A systemic inflammatory condition of the joint lining. It can affect people of any age and usually affects multiple joints on both sides of the body.
Post-traumatic arthritis: A form of osteoarthritis that develops after an injury, such as a fracture or dislocation of the shoulder. Arthritis can also develop after a rotator cuff tear.
