Our Doctors Understand Bursitis Symptoms and Treatments
Bursitis occurs when there is inflammation in the small, fluid-filled sacs that provide lubrication in many of your joints. These sacs, called bursae, cushion the bones, tendons, and muscles as you move. Without them, it would be difficult to move without pain. When they become inflamed, movement causes significant pain and restricts a joint’s movement.
According to the National Institute of Arthritis and Musculoskeletal and Skin Diseases, bursitis typically occurs because of repeated movements in the affected joints. This can happen because of your occupation, recreational activities, or other repetitive motions. “Tennis elbow” is one of the most commonly known types of bursitis. Traumatic injuries to the joint can also cause bursitis, as well.
The most common areas of the body for bursitis are the shoulder, elbow, and hips. Knees and other joints can also develop bursitis, although it is less common.
You Can Get Bursitis Treatment and Pain Relief From Our Hollywood Team
The Specific Care Chiropractic team treats every case based on its own symptoms and facts. Before you come to your initial intake exam, you will complete paperwork that outlines your symptoms, injury’s cause, and diagnosis.
We will also ask questions during your exam to learn more about your pain and how it affects your everyday life. We use x-rays and other imaging scans to get a good look at your injuries. Once we have the documentation to know what we are dealing with, we create a treatment plan using chiropractic adjustments and physiotherapy services. These are all available to our patients in Hollywood.
As you continue through your treatment, we continually assess your progress. We want to ensure we reduce inflammation and eliminate your pain. Then, it is time to tweak your plan to help you strengthen the joint and build flexibility. This helps prevent future injuries.
Treatments Our Physicians Prescribe for Bursitis in Hollywood, FL
While each case receives an individualized plan for treatment and follow-up care, we use many of the same techniques to address bursitis in our clients. Ultimately, this depends on the location of the injury, its symptoms, and other case facts. Chiropractic and physiotherapy services could include:
- Extremity manipulation: A chiropractic adjustment can reduce inflammation and pain with repeated sessions. It is effective for treating bursitis affecting the hips, shoulders, arms, or legs.
- Rehabilitative therapy: This physiotherapy routine can help you regain strength and range of motion in the affected joint and the nearby muscles, ligaments, and tendons. Patients learn these exercises in our office and then practice them at home.
- Ultrasound therapy: This therapy is often used to relieve shoulder pain associated with bursitis. The soundwaves help to relax the muscles and ease the inflammation in the area.
- Corrective care: This refers to the follow-up care our physicians provide. We monitor your progress during treatment and continue even after the initial injury heals. We provide additional therapy to help build strength and flexibility in the affected joint. This allows us to help prevent future injuries and address any flare-ups that occur.
Depending on your needs, we have many other services we can provide as a part of your treatment plan. For example, if we determine that an issue in your lumbar spine is contributing to your hip pain and bursitis, we can provide spinal adjustments to realign these vertebrae and reduce your risk of further injuries. We will look at the way the parts of your body work together to determine if you need any additional support to prevent further complications.
We Offer More Than Corrective and Chiropractic Care at Our Hollywood Office
You may come to us after suffering harm in a negligence-related incident. If so, you may want to file an injury claim to recover compensation, including for healthcare expenses. Yet, in that instance, you need evidence to compel the insurer to settle.

When Should I Contact Specific Care Chiropractic About My Bursitis?
Bursitis often goes away on its own, so many people choose to wait it out. After a few days, though, it can become difficult to continue taking time away from work and limiting your activities. The sooner you call Specific Care Chiropractic, the sooner you can schedule your initial intake exam and start treatment.
There is no reason to suffer for weeks with pain and limited mobility or reduced activity levels. We know you have things to get done, and we want to help you get better. We can also help with nagging cases that do not seem to fully heal or those that recur frequently.
