You Can but typically the pipe for the shower head that is coming out of the wall is just a short piece of pipe that you should be able to remove easily enough by unscrewing it. Then you can just replace that piece with a new one. == Answer== Do the same as above but make sure your shower arm is not floppy, if it is you could tear up the riser coming to the arm. Be very carefull.

How do you change the shower arm going to your shower head?

I am assuming you are talking about the curved pipe coming out of the wall leading to your shower head. In order to change it, simply unscrew it counter-clockwise using a pipe wrench. To install the new one, make sure you use pipe sealing compound and wrap the jaws of the pipe wrench with tape to prevent the finish from marring.
