Shoulder Arthritis Braces and Support
Some joints in the body are more likely to develop problems from normal wear and tear. Degeneration causes the cartilage that cushions the joint to wear out. This type of arthritis is called osteoarthritis. The acromioclavicular (AC) joint in the shoulder is a common spot for osteoarthritis to develop in middle age. Degeneration of the AC joint can be painful and can cause difficulty using the shoulder for everyday activities. If you would like assistance in selecting a brace for OA shoulder, try our guided tool, Brace Advisor for recommendations based on OA shoulder and how you intend to use the brace.
