Fluid-filled sacs surrounding the joints called bursae act as a shock absorber of sorts and cushion for bones, muscles, and tendons. When these sacs become inflamed, bursitis develops and causes significant pain and discomfort. Most prevalent in the hip, shoulder, elbow, and knee, bursitis may resolve on its own by resting. However, in more severe cases, treatment may be needed to allow you to complete everyday activities.

At Pain Zero, our team offers various treatment options for alleviating pain, swelling, or stiffness. After a diagnostic assessment of bursitis, our pain care specialists will create a treatment plan that specifically meets your needs and concerns. Learn more about bursitis treatments by contacting one of our Central Ohio facilities to schedule an initial consultation with our experienced pain care team.

Activities that may trigger bursitis include aging, jobs, or hobbies that involve repetitive tasks, such as sports, manual labor, or music. Conditions such as arthritis, diabetes, gout, or thyroid disease can also trigger bursitis. After conducting a physical exam, evaluating your medical history, and performing a few imaging tests and a blood test for infection, our pain care doctors will be able to provide more accurate treatment options for your specific case of bursitis.

Typically, conservative methods, such as rest, ice, and over-the-counter pain medications, are primary treatments for bursitis. If a patient needs more advanced methods, then our specialists may suggest prescription-strength medication, physical therapy, or injection therapy. In more severe cases of the condition, surgery may be necessary to drain the inflamed sac.

Following any treatment, our Pain Zero team will let you know exactly what to expect and determine if any follow-up treatments will be necessary to help maintain your results.

I've been coming here for 4 months now after trying to manage my back pain issues with every other treatment and medicine that my previous specialists offered from May 2022 until Nov 2023. In these 4 months I've had more improvement in mobility and pain relief than i did in all of 2022 and 2023. I've also seen a significant weight loss from being able to move better, cook my own food, and work again. Pain Zero also offer medicine when needed between procedures and more importantly they listen to the issues you're having and provide safe and effective pain relief. I wish I would have came here 2 years ago when my issues first started, but I'm thankful to have found a great doctor and pain management center now. Why I would suggest Pain Zero over a place that rhymes with Northo Oro for spine and neck issues through my personal experience. (Dr. C and his orthopedic team at "Northo Oro" are awesome!) I feel Dr Taif at Pain Zero listened to my issues and concerns with the pain and offered options he felt was best for me. I was very hesitant after many short lived & underwhelming procedures at the other places. Pain Zero offers all the same out patient surgical procedures as the bigger ortho centers. The difference in that is the big centers have around 30 people on staff and PZ has about 5. So the costs of the procedures are far less and you don't have an audience in the room either like the other place.

Our team members at Pain Zero can perform a comprehensive evaluation and help determine if any lifestyle, health, or environmental factors could be causing your symptoms.

Does bursitis go away on its own?

In some cases, yes. However, if the bursitis is causing significant pain or discomfort, it’s best to see a professional for an evaluation and treatment plan. Depending on the severity of your condition, our specialists in Central Ohio may suggest rest, over-the-counter medications, and other methods before recommending invasive treatments.
