Bursitis in the Joints
Whether you’re at work or at play, if you overuse or repetitively stress the area around your body’s joints, you may eventually develop a painful inflammation called bursitis.
You have more than 150 bursae in your body. These small, fluid-filled sacs lubricate and cushion pressure points between your bones and the tendons and muscles near your joints. They help your joints move with ease. Bursitis occurs when one or more of your bursae becomes inflamed. When inflammation occurs, movement or pressure is painful, affecting the bursa and nerves surrounding the inflamed area.
Bursitis most often affects the areas around your joints.The areas of the bursa are the elbow (olecranon), wrist, shoulder, knee (patellar), ankle (calcaneal), hip (trochanteric) and pelvis (ischial). But you can also have bursitis even in the base of your big toe. Bursitis pain usually goes away within a week or so with proper treatment, but recurrent painful flare-ups are common and can be very frustrating.
Sometimes bursitis can be a difficult condition to treat even by the best of physicians and specialists. Specific treatment will depend on what area of your body is affected as determined by a physician, preferably a specialist – preferably one who deals with sports injuries. Most have seen everything under the sun when it comes to bursitis to the extremities of the human body. How he/she deals with your bursitis will depend on…
• Your age, overall health, and medical history with bursitis
• Extent of your bursitis condition
• Your tolerance for specific medications, procedures, or therapies relative to bursitis
• Expectations for the course of your bursitis condition
• Your opinion or preference for bursitis treatment
Treatment may include:
• Activity modification
• Physical Therapy
An important step in avoiding bursitis is pre-warming up the area of the body before exercising or any other activity that involves its use. This can be accomplished with gentle stretching exercises. Ice and pain topical pain relievers can also be very beneficial for relieving the pain and inflammation, of bursitis and thereby allow you to stay active in your lifestyle.
Menastil or CorProfen– Note the RED spot on the shoulder…if you have shoulder bursitis, this is the area to apply Menastil or CorProfen as indicated. You feel pain exactly where the point of bursitis pain is occurring because it is the bursa at this point of your bursitis condition that is inflamed and affecting the nerve in the joint, in this case the shoulder joint as shown. Note the bursa locations on the other pictures on this page as well. The grey areas are the “spots” to pinpoint and apply your application of either of our Menastil or CorProgen products.
Apply your topical solution to a spot about the size of the cup of the palm of your hand, let it dry and apply a heat compress or pad over the treatment area…wait up to 15 minutes and if no relief, you missed the spot on your shoulder where the inflamed bursa is affecting the nerve..experiment until you find the right spot… waiting up to10 minutes each time you try a different spot.
