Shoulder Arthritis and Osteoarthritis Kennesaw, GA

Shoulder Arthritis and Osteoarthritis

Arthritis, or inflammation of the shoulder joint, can cause stiffness, pain and limit mobility. The shoulder is vital for both arm and hand movement and strength. Shoulder arthritis can make it difficult to perform many daily tasks and enjoy certain activities. If you have the symptoms of shoulder arthritis, early diagnosis and treatment can help slow the progression and improve your symptoms. Come see us at Medici Medical Arts for effective treatments to alleviate shoulder pain and functional issues that come with shoulder arthritis.

The most common type of shoulder arthritis is osteoarthritis, a degenerative wearing down of the shoulder joint. Those who have previous shoulder injuries or repetitive shoulder strain are at higher risk of osteoarthritis. As the cartilage wears thin due to osteoarthritis, the joint friction can cause inflammation and pain. Some of the symptoms of shoulder arthritis include:

  • Stiffness in the shoulder joint
  • Limited range of motion when lifting or rotating the arm
  • Pain when using the arm, hand or shoulder
  • Swelling
  • A grinding or clicking sensation or sound when using the shoulder

Osteoarthritis will generally only affect one shoulder at a time. If both shoulders are experiencing symptoms, it could be rheumatoid arthritis or another condition.

Treatments for Shoulder Arthritis

Slowing the degeneration of the shoulder joint is the best way to preserve mobility and limit pain. Treatments can include cortisone or other steroid injections to relieve inflammation. Physical therapy can help improve mobility and strengthen the muscles controlling the shoulder joint. Our team at Medici Medical Arts also offers regenerative medicine options that can help repair the joint, like PRP or stem cell injections.

If you have pain and stiffness in your shoulder joint, it may be signs of arthritis. Schedule an exam and consultation with one of our experienced pain doctors at Medici Medical Arts. We have locations in the greater Atlanta area for arthritis treatment and pain management.

He really cares. I would highly recommend this office to anyone! They really care and they are genuine. My PCP recommended Dr. Sonny and I'm ever so grateful for that

Dr. Dosanjh Patient

Thoroughly appreciated the medical services provided by Dr. Dosanjh. Dr. Dosanjh is very confident in his patient care and concern. I would definitely refer others and have been telling others about my experience at Medici Medical Arts both Kennesaw and Buckhead. I wish he took my insurance, as I have injuries not related to my work incident for which I was seeing Dr. Dosanjh. Thank you so very much, Dr. Dosanjh! The staff is warm, welcoming and cheerful and most helpful.


Dr. Dosanjh is a very smart, caring doctor who is highly skilled in his field. He spends whatever time is necessary to "hear" his patients and to explain the proper and best results course of action. I have a very complicated head and neck injury, so it was essential to me to have someone who truly listened with undivided attention, and thought outside the box when necessary. His staff is exemplary. They could not be more helpful and thoughtful. Lucy in particular is a gift of sunshine.

Dr. Sonny is the best! He has done more for me in 2 months than my previous doctor did in 14 years! If you truly want to get out of pain, then contact Dr. Sonny immediately! I just cannot reiterate how incredible a doctor he is! For that matter, his entire staff is warm and inviting! And to top it off, as a patient you get free use of their amazing gym. Highly, highly, highly recommend Dr. Sonny!


After a major car accident I saw Dr. Sonny for my neck & back pain. He was very knowledgeable about treatment options & really listened to all my concerns. Trigger point injections are helping me currently & I will continue to come back to Dr. Sonny.

I am thrilled with the care I have received from Dr. Dosanjh. He has a fabulous staff that is caring and attentive. I had serious back pain that was hindering my quality of life. Now I am on my way to being discharged. I am very thankful for all they did for me. I will not miss the pain I was in but there is no doubt that l will miss them.
