A natural solution to relieve and manage pain and inflammation caused by bursitis.
Understanding bursitis and how routine chiropractic care can help manage it.
Treating Bursitis With Chiropractic Care
Bursitis is often called the working person’s disease. Bursitis can occur when you repeat motions or receive a minor impact to your joints. A bursa is a fluid-filled sac meant to act as a cushion around joints to protect tendons and bones. When joints are under pressure or overused from work, sports or otherwise, the bursa can get inflamed. This will cause symptoms such as tenderness, swelling and pain in the joints and tendons.
This disease is common in older individuals and those who participate in work or hobbies that involve carpentry, raking, golfing, painting, shoveling, golf, tennis, scrubbing, throwing, skiing and pitching. Bursitis can affect the knees, elbows and hips.
How Chiropractic Care Can Help Bursitis
A chiropractor helps those suffering from bursitis get relief from the swelling and pain caused by the disease. Routine visits to your chiropractor will offer non-invasive, safe and non-addictive alternatives to using prescription medications to relieve pain and swelling.
A chiropractor will deliver therapy using adjustments and simple manipulation. The adjustments are meant to reduce the restrictions on your joints or to fix misalignment in your spine and joints. This is done to improve the joint itself and your central nervous system. Improving your spinal health, nervous system functions and increasing your joint mobility can help your body manage bursitis symptoms better.
Chiropractic Health Benefits Of Adjustments:
Improvement in coordination and joint motion.
Relief from joint pain and discomfort.
Improvement in the flexibility of joints and tendons.
A decrease in joint inflammation.
These are just a few of the common benefits patients suffering from bursitis can gain when getting chiropractic adjustments regularly. It is important to visit a reputable chiropractor to see if adjustments will help your specific condition. They will give you an examination and a consultation before moving to a treatment plan. Your doctor may work with a chiropractor to treat your bursitis disease together. In addition to your chiropractic care and adjustments, you may get help with your symptoms by visiting physical therapists, a massage therapist and other primary care doctors.
