Treatment for Bursitis With Chiropractic Care
Bursitis can occur from minor impact injuries or through repetitive motion injuries. The bursa is the sack of fluid that acts as a cushion to protect bones and tendons around a near joint. If a particular joint in the body is overused or under increased loads of pressure for lengthy periods of time from work, sports, or yard work a nearby bursa can become inflamed. After this inflammation occurs, usually tenderness, pain, and swelling are the common symptoms of bursitis. Bursitis is most common in those individuals over 40 years old the areas of the body most commonly affected by bursitis are shoulders and can occur in individuals with hobbies such as gardening, carpentry, shoveling, painting, tennis, golf, skiing, and bowling. Bursitis can also occur in other areas of the body including the hips, knees, and elbows.
Chiropractic care can be an excellent way to manage the pain and relieve the swelling in an individual's body. Chiropractic care provides a safe alternative to prescription medications. Chiropractic treatment delivers a gentle manual form of joint motion therapy known as a chiropractic adjustment. These chiropractic adjustments help reduce misalignments and restrictions in the spine and other joints thereby reducing inflammation and improving function in the affected joint area. By increasing joint mobility and improving nervous system function your body has a better ability to manage these symptoms.
