Shoulder Bursitis

Shoulder Bursitis

Shoulder bursitis, what you need to know!

Shoulder bursitis is a common condition that occurs when the small, fluid-filled sacs (called bursae) that cushion the bones, tendons, and muscles in the shoulder become inflamed. This inflammation can cause pain, stiffness, and discomfort in the shoulder, particularly when moving the arm or shoulder.

Symptoms of shoulder bursitis may include:

  • Pain when moving the arm or shoulder, or when applying pressure to the affected area
  • Stiffness or difficulty moving the arm or shoulder
  • Swelling or tenderness in the affected area
  • Redness or warmth in the affected area
  • A dull ache in the shoulder, particularly when the arm is at rest

There are several treatment options for shoulder bursitis, including:

  • Rest: Avoiding activities that strain or irritate the shoulder can help reduce inflammation and allow the bursae to heal.
  • Ice: Applying ice to the affected area can help reduce inflammation and numb the pain.
  • Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs): Over-the-counter medications such as ibuprofen or naproxen can help reduce inflammation and relieve pain.
  • Physical therapy: A physical therapist can teach you exercises to stretch and strengthen the muscles and tendons around the shoulder, which can help reduce inflammation and improve mobility.
  • Corticosteroid injections: If other treatments are not effective, a healthcare provider may inject a corticosteroid medication into the affected bursa to reduce inflammation.

In some cases, surgery may be necessary to remove the inflamed bursa or to repair any underlying damage to the shoulder. However, surgery is usually only recommended if other treatment options have been unsuccessful.

It’s important to see a healthcare provider if you are experiencing shoulder pain that is not improving with home remedies or over-the-counter pain medication. Your provider can help determine the cause of your pain and recommend the most appropriate treatment.

Our physiotherapist, osteopath and myotherapists can assist you with shoulder pain especially shoulder bursitis. In most circumstances we will see quick results with 5 sessions and most pain gone within 8-12 weeks following a strengthening program.

to get the most out of life”. As first contact practitioners, similarly to Myotherapy & Osteopathy, you don’t
need a referral form the doctor to see a physiotherapists. However most often, physiotherapist work with
other allied health professionals and medical practitioners to achieve the greatest outcome for patients as a
team.

How physiotherapist treat?

– exercise programs to guide mobility, strength and stability – including pilates.
– mobilisation of joins to help aid with pain tolerance and stiffness

diagnose and treat issues. This keeps the latest and most relevant treatment techniques at the forefront of
