@Jockette I have been reading your thread because both my shoulders have been bothering me lately. This is very informative. When I had my bone scan prior to my revision (to confirm loosening of the tibial implant) it showed that I had arthritis in both shoulders. I was surprised. My shoulders both hurt but I have good range of motion.Arthritis in the shoulder does the same thing as knees and hips - the disease causes the cartilage to wear away and eventually you have bone on bone. But, because the shoulder is not a weight bearing joint, many people don't experience a lot of pain as the disease progresses. For them, it's more a loss of range of motion and strength.
