How Is Shoulder Arthritis Treated?
Arthritis is a degenerative disease that cannot be reversed. However, there are several treatments available to help control symptoms and preserve joint health. Your ideal course of shoulder arthritis treatment will depend on key factors such as your age, overall health, symptoms, and what type of arthritis you have. Osteoarthritis is the most common type of shoulder arthritis, resulting from the age-related degeneration of cushioning joint cartilage that tends to occur after age 50.
At Louisville Orthopaedic Clinic, we take a conservative approach to shoulder arthritis treatment that focuses first on improving symptoms through non-surgical treatments like:
- Physical therapy
- Behavior modification
- Anti-inflammatory injection therapy
When surgery is clinically appropriate, our shoulder surgeons utilize the latest advancements in muscle-sparing techniques when performing procedures such as:
- Shoulder arthroscopy
- Partial shoulder replacement
- Total shoulder replacement
- Reverse total shoulder replacement
- Resection arthroplasty
We also believe that personalization is key to any successful shoulder arthritis treatment plan. As a Louisville Orthopaedic Clinic patient, you can be assured that you’ll be given a treatment regimen that considers your unique condition, symptoms, lifestyle, and care preferences. It’s all part of our commitment to providing our patients with world-class orthopedic treatment and the very best possible outcomes.
