There are some behaviors that can increase a person’s risk for some of the conditions that can lead to the need for a total shoulder replacement.

Working in a job that requires manual labor with hands and arms, especially with them raised overhead, can increase your risk,

Other activities – including chronic steroid use, deep sea diving, and heavy alcohol use – can increase your risk of developing osteonecrosis (also known as avascular necrosis), according to the American Academy of Orthopaedic SurgeonsOff Site Icon (AAOS). This painful condition is caused by activities like these that disrupt the blood supply to the bone. That disruption ultimately leads to arthritis that creates a need for a total shoulder replacement.

Talk to your doctor for more information about what can put a person at risk for conditions that lead to total shoulder replacement.

The most common indication for TSA is shoulder pain due to arthritis that cannot be controlled with non-operative treatment such as anti-inflammatory medications by mouth or injection, or rest. Accompanying the pain is a progressive stiffness and loss of motion, with the patient often experiencing a grinding or grating sensation within the shoulder joint that is disturbing and painful. These sensations represent the bones of the ball and socket, devoid of cartilage, rubbing against one another.
