Its discomforts can limit your normal activities and interfere with your preferred lifestyle and activities.

We treat you and every client like an individual, not a one-size-fits-all patient chart.
When you trust your physical and internal health to our team, we take pride in developing a treatment protocol that fits your needs and meets your movement goals. If you are ready to find out how to rebuild your strength, our team is here. You can talk to one of our team members about how you feel now and what you hope to gain from restorative treatments.
We artfully combine chiropractic manipulations and adjustments, physical therapy, and other beneficial techniques to help you get started on the road to recovery.
How Bursitis Acts on Your Joints and Tendons
A bursa is a fluid-filled sac that creates a cushion between your joints and tendons. It makes everyday movements automatic and unnoticeable—until the bursa gets damaged. When that happens, you can develop a condition called bursitis, which reduces the effectiveness and comfort of the cushiony effect.
Bursitis can be painful. It can be caused by injuries you might sustain in an accident or develop due to a serious infection or overuse of your joints.
Health and wellness start from the inside out, so our team will begin developing your treatment plan by listening to your experience. We want to know what you hope to achieve so we can blend your health care goals seamlessly with our treatment plan. Then, we can conduct a thorough physical exam to pinpoint exactly where bursitis is affecting you and target those specific areas for treatment.
Retromalleolar Tendon Bursitis
Did you know your choice of footwear can lead to bursitis? Along with illness and injury, shoes with inflexible back support are one of the often-seen causes of this type of bursitis. The pain of retromalleolar tendon bursitis is usually felt in the Achilles tendon, calf, and back of the heel.
Posterior Achilles Tendon Bursitis
Most people walk at a unique gait and angle. When your gait forces your heel to come into repeated contact with the stiff back of a shoe, it can lead to this type of bursitis. Posterior Achilles tendon bursitis causes pain in your heel and Achilles tendon and can make taking even a few steps uncomfortable.
Because your hips help you walk and allow you to pivot and turn the lower half of your body, this type of bursitis that affects the hips can mean forced immobility. Commonly seen in older adults, it can occur due to accidental injuries, overuse of the hips, and skeletal anomalies.
Have you ever propped your head up using your elbow? That motion of resting your elbow on a hard surface like a table or countertop can cause undue pressure and lead to elbow bursitis over time.
Knee and Kneecap Bursitis
Your knees play a major role in walking, running, jumping, and almost all your legs’ motions. Knee or kneecap bursitis can force you to be immobile, causing pain in your shin, knee, and hamstring. Exercising without stretching, excess weight, and arthritis can lead to this painful condition.
Specific Care Chiropractic’s Bursitis Treatment Plan
Bursitis affects many people, but it doesn’t impose the same limitations on each sufferer. In Pompano Beach, our chiropractic care team works with you to devise a custom treatment plan just for you. We artfully combine chiropractic manipulations and adjustments, physical therapy, and other beneficial techniques to help you get started on the road to recovery.
Your body’s extremities rely on your joints and tendons to make smooth, pain-free movements. Your bursa plays an important role in making these motions easy by providing the cushion that keeps joints from rubbing and creating harmful friction. Our manipulation of your extremities can relieve that friction and pain when directed at the affected extremities.
When bursitis flares up, it can add to your pain, stress, and frustration. As part of your care package, our team carefully and routinely monitors your progress, checks for flare-ups, and adjusts your treatment plan and goals as needed. We check with you regularly and make it easy for you to report any new discomforts or flare-ups to us.
Stretching and Strengthening Exercises
By creating a custom exercise regimen, our doctors and staff give you the tools you need to keep your progress moving in the right direction and ensure you regain the physical ease you need and deserve.
Our ultrasound therapy program helps damaged tissue restore and rejuvenate itself using sound wave technology to penetrate and relax your muscles. The sound waves can be targeted to reach right where you need them to ensure you get the best possible result.
