Bursitis Treatment in Miami
What is Bursitis?
Bursitis is the painful inflammation of your cartilage and connective tissues, including muscles, tendons, and joints. It commonly affects the elbows, knees, feet, shoulders, and hips. It can affect anyone regardless of age, gender, and race, and can be frustrating to deal with.
If left untreated, bursitis can lead to an array of problems, including arthritis and damage to other crucial structures within your body. Sadly, many people do not seek proper medical care for their condition, which leaves them to suffer from the pain and discomfort indefinitely.
What Causes Bursitis?
Bursitis can be caused by several factors, including injury, non-weight bearing sports activities, prolonged periods of lying or seated or standing, and traumatic events such as an injury sustained healing process or surgery.
If you have been suffering from stiff, burning pain in your joints for more than a month, then contact our office immediately for a diagnosis. We can help you get rid of this painful condition that can slowly and gradually damage your body. Our bursitis treatments stretch and strengthen your muscles, joints, and tendons so they may heal without further damage.
Bursitis is a painful condition that occurs when a fluid-filled sac (the bursa) that surrounds a joint becomes swollen and inflamed. The sac has a small amount of fluid to lubricate the joint so its bones can move smoothly. But if the sac becomes irritated, bursitis causes the sac to fill with more fluid than it can handle. This can happen from repetitive movements or an injury. When this happens, general bursitis symptoms occur.
You may notice these bursitis symptoms around your joints or muscles:
- Redness and warmth
- Swelling or tenderness
- Restricted range of motion
- Pain during movement
- Joint stiffness
