How Biotherapy Alternative Medicine Clinic can help people with Bursitis

If you are here, you or your loved one suffer from bursitis and look for non-drug, natural approach for this condition. Therefore, you know your diagnosis-“bursitis” from a doctor or the internet, but the tradition treatment approach did not improve your condition or caused some unpleasant side effects.

Bursitis is a painful condition that involves the small fluid-filled pads that are called bursae (bursa (singular)). Bursae design as a cushion between bones, tendons and muscles around the joints. Function of the bursae is to cushion, lubricate, and reduce friction between these tissues so joints can move easily without pain. Bursitis occurs when bursa is getting inflamed. Bursitis usually takes place near joints that carry out regular repetitive motion. These conditions are also referred to as “repetitive strain injuries” (RSI), “cumulative trauma disorders” (CTD) or “occupational overuse syndromes” (OOS).

The most common places for bursitis are in the shoulder, elbow, hip, knee, heel, and the bottom of the big toe. They have the different names.

  • Shoulder: subacromial bursitis, bricklayer’s shoulder or frozen shoulder
  • Elbow: olecranon bursitis, tennis elbow, miner’s elbow, dialysis elbow, swellbow, student’s elbow, water on the elbow, dart thrower’s elbow, lunger’s elbow
  • Hip: trochanter bursitis, hip bursitis
  • Knee: prepatellar bursitis, housemaid’s knee, clergyman’s knee, beat knee, carpet layer’s knee, coal miner’s, knee, carpet cutter’s knee, or nun’s knee
  • Heel: policeman’s heel
  • Buttocks: tailor’s bottom, weaver’s bottom
  • Base of the big toe: bunion
