What is shoulder bursitis?

Shoulder bursitis is a common condition caused by inflammation of the fluid-filled sacs located at various sites in the shoulder joint. Each sac, known as a bursa, acts to reduce friction between adjacent structures such as bones and tendons which can be aggravated during overuse activities like throwing or repeating arm motions. Over time this repeated movement can cause the bursa to become infected, leading to swelling and pain that can interfere with range of motion in the affected shoulder.

What are the symptoms of shoulder bursitis?

Common symptoms of shoulder bursitis include tenderness, pain, and stiffness when moving the shoulder joint. Patients may experience sharp or dull pain which can occur most often when raising the arm or lying on the affected side in bed. Some additional signs of shoulder bursitis involve swelling around the shoulder joint and a grating sensation when the joint is moved. If you suspect you may have shoulder bursitis, it is important to consult your doctor for a diagnosis and treatment plan as soon as possible.

What are the treatments for shoulder bursitis?

Depending on the severity of the condition, treatments for shoulder bursitis may range from resting, icing and taking anti-inflammatory medication to seeking chiropractic or physiotherapy care. Massage therapy can also be beneficial in providing relief from pain and tension; it helps release endorphins which can reduce stress and improve circulation to the affected area. Chiropractic care focuses on restoring proper alignment to the spine and joints, allowing for improved mobility and decreased inflammation. Physiotherapy treatments target specific muscles through targeted exercises and stretches to help strengthen them and promote healing.
