Shoulder pain due to osteoarthritis treatment
The shoulder joint is the most extensive joint of the body in the range of motion so that a person can use the upper limb naturally. As a result of this expanded range of motion, the shoulder joint is one of the least stable and the most vulnerable to injuries. The shoulder joint (like other joints) is prone to joint diseases such as osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis.
The shoulder joint consists of humerus bone that is joined with the scapula bone at the glenoid cavity. And this joint is surrounded by a case supported by several integrated ligaments to maintain the stability of the joint. And several muscles control the movement of the shoulder joint, as these muscles work in harmony to ensure the smoothness of the movements of this joint and the breadth of its range.
