I am unaware of a genetic condition which reduces movement in joints. To "clean up " a joint is also very a vague and doubtful procedure. If you have pain down the arms with lameness and weakness of grip one has to consider a nerve problem as the cause of your symptoms. Have a look at our website under www.shoulderinstitute.co.za and specifically at "Thoracic Outlet Syndrome" and see if you recognise any of the features of that condition.
I would also suggest that you see another specialist who has a special knowledge of shoulder problems for another opinion
