Bursitis Treatment

Here is the ONE key to fixing your bursitis problems

Lets get straight to the point. Bursitis can be a nagging, niggly, frustrating and sometimes debilitating problem. Here is the most important aspect to your recovery:

You need to identify what the aggravating activity is (or was), and reduce or remove it until you can address the factors behind why it has resulted in a bursitis.

Physical Therapist

For example, if you’ve recently started a new gym program, and you’ve noticed some shoulder pain which you’ve been told is bursitis, you should be asked the following questions:

  • Did you do too much too soon

  • Is your exercise technique sound

  • Is the balance of strength around your shoulders appropriate

  • Do you have adequate control, flexibility and mobility around your shoulder

  • Do you have too much flexibility or mobility around your shoulder

  • Do your work or home duties contribute to excessive stress through your shoulder

Each case of bursitis is unique

Certain areas of the body seem to be more susceptible to developing bursitis, and each area requires a targeted assessment and specific treatment methods. The two most common areas include:

  1. Shoulder (subacromial bursitis) - See our article on shoulder bursitis by clicking here

  2. Hip (ischiogluteal or trochanteric bursitis)

A thorough assessment by an experienced sports physiotherapist can help you answer all the above questions and work out a plan detailing exactly what you need to do to fix your bursitis pain.
