Bursitis is a common condition that affects numerous patients that pass through our clinic doors. It can be a debilitating condition if not managed properly.
There are numerous ways Bursae can become irritated and painful including but not limited to trauma, unaccustomed repetitive activity, altered bio-mechanics and infection. Once the Bursae becomes irritated it will have a significant inflammatory response in which the Bursae, adjacent joint and musculature become painful, hot, swollen and tender to touch. Shoulder bursitis may be associated with difficulty raising your arm above your head or reaching for the seat belt. Where long distance walking or sleeping on the side of the injury, may be an indication that the major Bursae around your hips is irritated.
