Bursitis

Bursitis


Bursitis is a medical condition characterized by the inflammation of bursae, which are small, fluid-filled sacs located near joints.

 

These sacs act as cushions, reducing friction between bones, tendons, and muscles during movement.

 

Bursitis commonly occurs when repetitive motions or excessive pressure lead to irritation and swelling of these sacs. The condition can result in pain, tenderness, and limited range of motion in the affected joint.

 

Common areas where bursitis occurs include the elbow, hip, and shoulder.

 

Treatment typically involves rest, anti-inflammatory medications, and, in some cases, physical therapy.

Remedial Massage techniques target the muscles surrounding the affected joint, helping to alleviate tension and reduce inflammation around the bursa. By promoting blood flow and lymphatic drainage, massage therapy can aid in the removal of excess fluid and metabolic waste, easing discomfort and promoting healing.

 

Assisted Stretching therapy focuses on increasing flexibility and range of motion, which can help reduce pressure on the bursa and alleviate pain
