Bursitis treatment plan at Border Therapy Services

Bursitis is a condition that causes the fluid-filled sacs in your joints, known as bursae, become inflamed. In your shoulder, bursitis is commonly found between the top of the arm bone and the tip of the shoulder bone.

The inflammation of the bursae causes a shrinking of the space in your shoulder between these two bones, limiting the space that your muscles and tendons have to move.

Inflammation-induced shrinking and the rubbing together of your shoulder tendons, muscles and bones that it causes that results in you experiencing pain in your shoulder.

If you have bursitis, seeking physical therapy as treatment could help you find relief.

The physical therapists at Border Therapy Services can help you deal with the pain of your bursitis by creating a personalized treatment plan for you that includes a variety of physical therapy elements. Some of the treatment plan elements that our team uses to treat the pain of bursitis include:

  • Active shoulder motion techniques

  • Cold therapy
  • Scapular stabilization techniques
  • Electrical stimulation
