Arthritis is inflammation of one or more of your joints. In an arthritic shoulder, the inflammation leads to cartilage damage and loss which results in pain and stiffness.
A rotator cuff tear is a common cause of shoulder pain and disability in adults. The rotator cuff tendons cover the head of the humerus, allowing you to lift and rotate your arm. When one of the rotator cuff tendons is torn, the tendon no longer attaches to the head of the humerus, which will cause weakness in your shoulder.
A subluxation or partial dislocation is when the head of the humerus is partially out of the socket (glenoid). A dislocation means it is all the way out of the socket. Both cause pain and instability in the shoulder.

Injury to the anterior cruciate ligament is one of the most common knee injuries. Athletes who participate in high demand sports like football, soccer, netball and basketball are at risk of injuring their anterior cruciate ligaments.
The meniscus is a wedge-shaped piece of fibrocartilage in your knee between the tibia (shinbone) and femur (thighbone). You have two menisci: the lateral meniscus on the outside of your knee and the medial meniscus on the inside.
Dislocated Knee Cap (patella)
The patella or knee cap is the small bone located in front of the knee joint. It protects the knee and connects the quadriceps muscles in the front of the thigh to the tibia.
