for Bursitis

Bursitis is a common condition caused by the bursae, liquid sacs between the joints, muscles, and bones becoming inflamed, and leading to a lack of cushioning between these different elements of the body, causing pain and discomfort as they put pressure on the joints and muscles.

Chiropractic care can help you to overcome the symptoms of bursitis through pain management and a reduction in pressure on the nervous system, allowing you to lessen the pain that you are experiencing and ensure that you can return to your usual daily activities.

What is Bursitis?

Due to the fact that people can experience bursitis in many different areas of the body, the types of bursitis that you may experience vary. Bursitis occurs in the shoulders, ankles, hips, elbows, thighs, and knees, or wherever there are significant joints within your body. However, the most common types of bursitis are trochanteric bursitis (or hip bursitis) and shoulder bursitis.

You will know if you have bursitis due to a high-intensity pain in the affected area that is isolated to one joint and that increases with movement or when pressure is put on the area in question.

You may also find that the affected area swells for no other reason than the condition, and the area may feel tender with or without touch being applied. This pain may leave you unable to walk or mean that you have reduced movement in the affected areas, which can disable your ability to perform your usual daily tasks.

However, bursitis may be caused by a number of different conditions and incidents which may worsen your pain around the joints. It is important to know if there is an underlying cause for your bursitis so that you will be able to remedy and treat this in the best way possible. For instance, bursitis can be caused by injuries such as sporting incidents as this can create trauma and wear at the site of the joints, which can exacerbate the condition.

You can also get bursitis from infections brought on by conditions such as gout, which is called septic bursitis. The symptoms of this include fever, increased redness around the area that has been affected by bursitis, and if the area that has bursitis feels hot when you touch it.

You should be aware that bursitis can sometimes have other, dangerous symptoms, though. These include sharp, shooting pains through the limb that has been affected, pain that disables all movement, and excessive swelling or bruising that hinders your ability or carry out daily activities. These are more likely in cases of septic bursitis.

Can a Chiropractor Help Hip Bursitis and/or Shoulder Bursitis?

Although many people treat bursitis at home, bursitis chiropractors can help serious cases and ensure that you get the pain relief that you need as soon as possible. At SnapCrack Chiropractic, a chiropractor near you can help those suffering from bursitis and part of the nature of chiropractic care is relieving pressure on the joints through adjustments to the body and the area which the bursitis is focused on. This can help to reduce the inflammation evident through the condition, which will lessen the pain in the area.

Chiropractic care can also ensure that your joints are as mobile as they were before the condition through helping with their alignment, gradually restoring the motion and the flexibility in your joints that have previously been unavailable to you. This doesn’t only help cases of bursitis but can also prevent the condition from ever developing by keeping your joints supple, flexible and completely mobile.

Bursitis may be aggravated by pressure to the nervous system, and chiropractic care can help to solve this by regulating your spinal alignment and ensuring that it is in its proper position. Knowing that your nervous system is operating to its full potential can help to allow your body to heal itself, naturally boosting the ability of your body to reduce the pain that you are experiencing and alleviate your symptoms of bursitis.
