Rheumatoid Arthritis

Rheumatoid arthritis is an unfortunate chronic condition that causes swelling in the joint lining. Rheumatoid arthritis is an autoimmune disease, and patients who suffer from this may have pain, loss of motion, swelling, and warmth in the shoulder. They might also experience weakness in the shoulder joint.
Like patients with osteoarthritis, over-the-counter medicine can be used to deal with inflammation in patients with rheumatoid arthritis. Physical therapy and steroid injections can also help treat this. Dines Orthopedic also offers total shoulder replacement for this condition. Reverse shoulder replacement may also be recommended, depending on the soft tissue muscles' state around the shoulder joint.
