Bursitis

Bursitis is a painful condition that affects the small, fluid-filled sacs that cushion the bones, tendons, and muscles near your joints. Bursitis occurs when these fluid filled sacs, bursae, become inflamed.

Shoulders, elbows, and hips are the most common locations for bursitis. It is possible to have bursitis at the knee, heel, or base of the big toe, too. Bursitis is often associated with joints that undergo repetitive movement.

Bursitis is most commonly characterized by pain. A buildup may happen slowly or suddenly, especially if the area has calcium deposits. When you stretch or extend the joint, you may feel pain, and you may have limited range of motion even without pain. You may also experience redness, swelling or stiffness in the joint.

Bursitis is typically caused by repetitive motions or positions that put pressure on the bursae around a joint. Some examples include:

  • Throwing a baseball or lifting something repeatedly over your head
  • If you lean on your elbows for long periods of time
  • Extensive kneeling for tasks such as scrubbing floors or weeding

Additionally, the condition can also be caused by injury, trauma or inflammatory arthritis such as rheumatoid arthritis, gout and infection.

Although bursitis can occur to anyone, certain factors can raise your risk:

  • Bursitis becomes more common with age.
  • Your risk of developing bursitis increases if your job or hobby involves repetitive motions or pressure on specific bursae. Playing an instrument, gardening, laying carpet, and setting tiles are examples.
  • Bursitis is associated with certain systemic illnesses such as rheumatoid arthritis, gout, and diabetes. Bursitis of the hips and knees can be caused by being overweight.

Treatment For Bursitis

Acousana therapy is a highly effective, non-invasive approach to treating mild to severe bursitis with success rates over 86%.

Acousana utilizes patented SoftWave® technology to stimulate your body’s natural healing response by increasing blood flow by up to 300%, quickly reducing inflammation and therefore, getting rid of the pain associated with the condition.

Acousana therapy uses patented electrohydraulic SoftWaves® that are delivered through the skin using ultrasound gel. The SoftWaves trigger a natural biological response which initiates a healing process by increasing blood flow and improving circulation.

The SoftWaves “fool” the body into thinking that “damage” has occurred, when in reality, no damage has taken place. This response initiates your body’s natural self-repair process by reducing inflammation and thereby eliminating pain.

HowItWorks

Hip Bridges

The hip bridge works your glutes, hamstrings, and quadriceps. These muscles support the hip joints, making this exercise perfect for building hip strength.

  1. As you lay flat on your back, keep your feet flat on the ground close to your bottom and bend your knees.
  2. Put your weight on your heels to lift your hips up so they’re level with your shoulders and knees in a controlled motion.
  3. This upward motion should be felt primarily in your glutes and hamstrings.
  4. Slowly lower your hips back to the ground.
  5. Do five sets of 20 repetitions.

Elbow Flexion Stretch

  1. Lift your arm with your palm facing you and your elbow slightly bent.
  2. You can gently press on the back of the affected forearm with the other hand. You will feel a stretch in the back of your upper arm when you press your hand toward your shoulder.
  3. Hold the stretch for about 15 to 30 seconds.
  4. You can repeat this 2 to 4 times.

Posterior Stretching Exercise

  1. With your other hand, hold the elbow of your injured arm.
  2. Gently pull it up and across your body. There will be a soft stretch along the back of the injured shoulder.
  3. Keep the stretch for between 15 and 30 seconds. Slowly lower your arm.
  4. Do this 2 to 4 times.
