Bursae are fluid-filled sacs found around the joints that surround the areas where tendons, skin, and muscle tissues meet bones. They provide lubrication and help reduce friction between joints during movements. Overtime injuries and damage to the bursae cause inflammation and lead to bursitis. Bursitis causes discomfort and pain in the affected area and reduces the range of motion in our joints.
Manual Osteopathy can help provide relief pain caused by bursitis.
General symptoms of bursitis include swelling (inflammation), redness, and discomfort joint pain. There are four types of bursitis occurring in different parts of the body.
Manual Osteopathy is also an effective treatment option, along with lifestyle changes. Practicing good posture and regular exercise to strengthen muscles and joints will lower the risk of bursitis. Manual Osteopathic Techniques such as mobilizations and soft tissue release can increase blood flow in muscles and induce a higher range of motion. The increased movement can facilitate higher production of joint lubrication (synovial fluid) reduce the risk of irritating the bursae sacs. Hands-on manual therapy, proper exercise techniques, and anti-inflammatory medications are an effective combination for individual seeking relief.
