In arthritis, the cartilage on the ends of the shoulder bone gets damaged, and the bones rub on each other. The causes of arthritis are; rheumatoid disease, torn rotator cuff tendons or by wear and tear.
What part of the shoulder gets replaced?
In the shoulder joint, the ball is held by the ligaments and rotator cutoff tendons in the socket. The rotator cuff muscles begin on the shoulder blade, and they turn into tendons that are attached to the ball.Our shoulder is a ball and socket joint.
