Bursitis in the Shoulder

November 05, 2020 2 min read

Inside each of your shoulders is a small, fluid-filled sac known as a bursa. Bursae helps reduce friction between the bones in your joints. If the bursa in your shoulder becomes inflamed, it leads to a condition known as shoulder bursitis. When a shoulder bursa gets irritated and inflamed it grows in size. This means there is less space in the shoulder for muscles and tendons to move around, which can cause pain and a loss of movement in the shoulder.

The most common cause of shoulder bursitis is repetitive movement or overuse of the shoulder joint. Activities can also cause this including throwing a ball, tennis, painting, lifting objects overhead, and trauma from a fall onto the shoulder. In addition, chronic conditions such as rheumatoid arthritis can cause shoulder bursitis.

Symptoms:

  1. Pain when laying on shoulder
  2. Swelling in redness
  3. Pain around the outside or top of shoulder
  4. Pain when the shoulder is touched
  5. Reduced range of movement
  6. Pain when trying to circle your arm

 Bursitis of the shoulder is usually treatable at home. Symptoms are often relieved by rest, ice, compression, elevation, and anti-inflammatories. Once the pain goes away, some gentle stretching exercises can help speed up your recovery. But do not stretch to the point of extreme pain or discomfort.

Another wonderful treatment plan for your shoulders is our Therapeutic Body Wrap! The Body Wrap would offer some assistance with increasing mobility, lessening pain, and relaxing muscles. The Benefab ® fabric is infused with a powder blend comprised of 30 lead-free minerals that emit therapeutic waves known as FAR-infrared rays which penetrate deep to provide soothing relief for pain and healing. Which has a versatile design that can be worn as an overcoat or shawl and is comfortable enough to wear while resting or during activity. Check it out here!
