Colin Porter Husky Offensive Lineman Degenerative Arthritis of the Shoulders

This morning's Seattle Times carried the Headline "Colin Porter's career over". The article states that he has 'degenerative arthritis' of his shoulders perhaps resulting from repeated injuries starting in highschool.

Degenerative arthritis is a condition in which the cartilage and the natural roundness of the joint surfaces are lost. It is most easily diagnosed by x-rays.

Specific exercises may help shoulders with arthritis.

In severe cases, a ream and run procedure or a total shoulder replacement may be considered.
