Shoulder bursitis is quite simple to explain what is and what is the cause of the famous BURSITE. Bursitis occurs when the synovial membrane of a bursa becomes inflamed.
What is bursa:
The bursas are thin, lubricated pads located at points of friction between a bone and the surrounding soft tissue, such as skin, muscles, ligaments, and tendons. A bursa lies between a bone and an opposing surface (for example, skin) as a small balloon of water with only a few drops of fluid, wedged between two surfaces.
There are several stages of physical therapy for shoulder pain that are performed in order to treat this condition and restore normality. In the following sections, we will look through the varied stages of physical therapy for the pain.
What are the symptoms of shoulder bursitis?
Symptoms usually include tenderness in the external shoulder, especially when raising the arm above the head. A person with shoulder bursitis may find it painful to lift the arm, dress or press the affected side of the shoulder.
What are the treatments?
Treatment for shoulder bursitis, or any form of bursitis, is designed to control inflammation of the bursa.
When shoulder bursitis or tendonitis results from injury or overuse, initial treatment includes rest and other remedies to relieve inflammation. In cases of septic bursitis, in which the bursa is infected, antibiotics should also be used to prevent the spread of the infection.
Rest: Avoid activities that may aggravate and inflame the shoulder bursa, such as throwing, lifting, pushing, and pulling.
Physiotherapy: A physician may prescribe physiotherapy to lengthen or strengthen the shoulder muscles and improve posture, which may help treat current bursitis and tendinitis and ward off future problems.
Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, or NSAIDs. Oral anti-inflammatory drugs, such as aspirin, ibuprofen (for example, Advil), naproxen (eg, Aleve) and cox-2 inhibitors (eg Celebrex) may reduce swelling and inflammation and relieve pain associated with bursitis and tendonitis in the shoulder.
Topical medications. Topical medications come in the form of creams, sprays, gels and adhesives and are applied directly to the skin on the sore joint.
