In brief: Shoulder arthritis

Keep the shoulder flexible but minimize repetitive overhead activities.
Rotator cuff exercises with bands, cables or pulleys (done mostly below shoulder height) will help strengthen these "shock absorbing" muscles therefore leading to less stress across the arthritic joint.

In brief: NSAIDS

Anti-inflammatory medication is helpful to minimize arthritis pains in the shoulder.Therapy can also be used to help with pain motion and strength.
Sometimes an injection is helpful. When all other treatments have failed shoulder replacement surgery is the definitive treatment for shoulder arthritis.
