What Is Bursitis?
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.
What Are Treatment Options for Bursitis?
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.
