What’s bursitis and how can my osteopath help?

Bursa are small fluid-filled sacs that help reduce friction between tendons, muscles, and bones

These sacs are scattered all around the body, but there are particular areas where the bursa can become irritated and even inflamed resulting in pain! The shoulder and hip are common ones!

Irritation can be a result of repetitively sustained movements or even trauma to the affected region

Bursitis is commonly experienced in areas such as the shoulders, hips, and elbows

Osteopathic treatment may assist with normalizing the poor mechanics which resulted in bursitis in the first place

Your osteopath can help diagnose the problem provide you with some hot tips in changing the way you move and exercises to take the strain off the bursa.
