Overview of Bursitis
According to Johns Hopkins Medicine, bursae are the small, fluid-filled sacs that cushion and support the joints and tendons in the larger joints and extremities of your body. That can include:
When you suffer from bursitis, these cushions become painfully inflamed and lead to continuous friction. Its most commonly diagnosed causes are overuse of the affected joint, extreme pressure on the affected joint, and injury caused by physical trauma. Your age, overall physical health, and participation in sports can also contribute to bursitis.
Get Help When You Notice These Symptoms of Bursitis
Because bursitis is painful, it can mimic other conditions that cause pain. To get prompt and accurate treatment, bursitis should be accurately diagnosed by a health care professional. You should seek a definitive diagnosis if you notice any of the following signs and symptoms:
- General achiness
- Pain when pressed
- Swelling and discoloration
- Bruises and rashes
- Limited range of motion
Without treatment, bursitis can worsen over time and cause deterioration that limits your mobility and curtails your life. We can help. Our team will develop a custom treatment program designed to meet your specific goals and restore your health.
Discover the Benefits and Relief of a Custom Treatment Plan
Our Chiropractic health care team helps patients in Broward County reap the benefits of a custom bursitis treatment plan. We start building your treatment plan by learning about your symptoms and the way bursitis impacts your life. Your diagnosis will also include:
- A physical exam
- Laboratory tests
- Imaging exams
These tests and the details you provide help us identify the areas where bursitis is attacking your body. The cumulative results we receive will help our team choose the right treatment or a combination of treatments to maximize your relief. We then explain each treatment and explain which will offer you the most symptom relief.
Get Relief With Extremity Manipulation
Our team works hard to create the right combination of treatments for you based on the areas of pain, your lifestyle, and your general health. The treatment plan we develop for you will cover the following four phases:
- Acute Phase
- Rehab Phase
- Strengthening Phase
- Maximum Medical Improvement
The areas afflicted with bursitis — hips, knees, elbows, and shoulders — are extremities and will benefit from Chiropractic manipulation techniques. Professional manipulation of your extremities can provide you with pain relief and decreased inflammation of the bursae.
Relief From Corrective Care
The troubling symptoms of bursitis can come and go or linger for long periods of time. As you start a new treatment plan, you may experience occasional flare-ups. This is normal and should not be cause for panic or alarm. You should make our physicians and other team members involved in your treatment aware of any flare-ups, though.
Doing so allows us to adjust treatments and goals to ensure you get maximum relief. Our chiropractors will also track your symptoms and periods of relief to ensure you continue to make good progress.
Relief With Stretching and Strengthening Exercises
In line with Mayo Clinic treatment options, our team offers a variety of physical therapy techniques to treat bursitis. Your prescribed stretching and strengthening exercise plan will target affected areas for maximum relief. A regiment of gentle yet effective stretching techniques helps alleviate suffering by increasing mobility and flexibility.
We create a personalized plan of strengthening exercises. Our physicians instruct you on ways to continue exercise therapy at home. Our instructions include specific exercises and a performance schedule.
Relief With Ultrasound Therapy
Using gentle sound waves to treat bursitis with soothing, relaxing vibrations, ultrasound therapy offers relief for many bursitis patients. Its benefits include regeneration of damaged tissues, and it can be particularly helpful for treating bursitis focused in the shoulder area or caused by sports injuries.
