About Bursitis Pain & How Chiropractic Service

Treats It

Bursitis is a painful condition that occurs when the bursae, small fluid-filled sacs located between bones and soft tissue, become inflamed. The bursae act as cushions and help to reduce friction between bones and soft tissue as they move against each other. When the bursae become inflamed, they can cause pain and limit your range of motion.

The most common areas of the body where bursitis occurs include the hips, knees, shoulders, and elbows. It’s often caused by overuse or repetitive motions, but can also be the result of a direct injury or infection.

At our chiropractic clinic, we use a variety of techniques to help alleviate bursitis pain and improve mobility. Chiropractic adjustments, soft tissue therapy, and stretching exercises can all be effective in reducing inflammation and restoring proper function to the affected area.
