Experience Bursitis Relief Through Chiropractic Care

What is Bursitis?

Bursitis is a painful condition that occurs when fluid sacs known as bursa become inflamed and irritated. The bursae are there to cushion the spaces around the bone. Bursitis develops due to overuse or traumatic injury.

Bursitis can happen in the shoulders, hips, sit bones, knee, heel, big toe, or elbow. It can be very painful, and flares are common.

Chiropractic for Bursitis

A chiropractic adjustment is a non-addictive, non-invasive, and gentle therapy that involves reducing or eliminating joint restrictions and misalignments in the body. It can help improve the function of the nervous system and reduce inflammation. By improving the alignment and mobility of the joints, the body can manage the symptoms of bursitis.

There are many health benefits associated with chiropractic care and adjustments for bursitis.

  • Improved joint motion and coordination
  • Relief from joint discomfort and pain
  • Improved flexibility
  • Decreased inflammation

At Kaster Chiropractic and Associates, we will provide a consultation to determine if chiropractic care is the right treatment for your condition.

If necessary, we will refer you to a specialist for imaging such as an MRI or X-ray. Based on the results of the examination and consultation, we may also treat your bursitis alongside other healthcare providers such as physical and massage therapists.

Tips for at-home care:

  • Moist heat applied to the area can help reduce pain
  • Ice packs also can offer reduced swelling and pain relief
  • Bromelain and turmeric supplements can help reduce swelling
  • OTC anti-inflammatories can help short term
  • See your chiropractor regularly
  • Look into dry needling as a therapy

Do Not Leave Bursitis Untreated

Left untreated chronic pain usually develops due to a permanent thickening or enlargement of the bursa, this can cause chronic inflammation and pain and potentially muscle atrophy and loss of use of the joint.

With proper care, bursitis can clear up and you can live a pain-free life again! Come see us if you are in the Fort Myers, Florida area. | 239-332-2555 for your appointment.
