Bursitis is inflammation or irritation of a bursa sac. Common sites of bursitis are at the hip and shoulder.
Bursitis can be associated with the repeated use of the same joint or repeated pressure on the joint. Injury to the site can also be a cause.
Symptoms can include: pain and heat/burning sensation at the site.
How Lalor Soma Osteopathy can help.
During your consultation, your Osteopath will take a thorough history to better understand your symptoms. From there an examination will be conducted which involves performing range of motion testing and orthopaedic testing. An ultrasound may be recommended to confirm the diagnosis.
We work with our patients to establish an individualised treatment and management plan aimed at mobility and function, as well as providing our patients with education surrounding their pathology and useful tips to assist with the recovery process.
