shoulder.JPGBursitis is a common injury.  It is the inflammation of a bursa around a joint.  A bursa is a fluid filled sac that acts as a cushion between a bone and a tendon.  The cushion helps prevent friction between bones and other overlying soft tissues, like tendons. 

Overuse of a joint can lead to increased friction of the bursa, resulting in inflammation.  Bursitis can also be caused by compression of a joint, such as a side sleeper who puts significant pressure on the shoulder or hip joint for long periods of time.  Common symptoms of bursitis are pain, inflammation, and limited range of motion in a joint.

We have had success treating bursitis with chiropractic care.  The key is to catch these conditions early before they become more severe.  Please give us a call and schedule an appointment today.
