Brief Answer:
Degenerative changes.

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for posting your query.
The changes in your shoulder joint are degenerative changes related to age and a chronic inflammation. There is mild tearing of the tendons that need rest and anti inflammatory medicines for proper healing. Gradual physiotherapy can help in restoring the shoulder movements once the pain subsides.
I hope this answers your query.
In case you have additional questions or doubts, you can forward them to me, and I shall be glad to help you out.
Wishing you good health.
