Bursitis


  • Inflammation or swelling in a Bursa (fluid-filled sac in body that helps reduce friction between a bone and a tendon) – the Shoulder Bursa is called the Subacromial Bursa ,the Hip Bursa is called Trochanteric Bursa and the Knee Bursa is called the Prepetellar Bursa.
Shoulder
  • Can be experienced in the shoulder as: shoulder or upper arm pain that limits reaching, or lying on shoulder and athletic activity
  • Can be caused by several issues including: muscle imbalance, bone spurs, poor posture, poor ergonomics and/or shoulder blade weakness
Hip
  • Can be experienced in the hip as: hip, groin or buttock ache or pain that limits lying or sleeping on that side, stair use, walking or running
  • Can be caused by several issues including: muscle imbalance, SI Joint Dysfunction, chronic low back pain, flat feet or excessive pronation, and/or knee or hip weakness
Knee
  • Can be experienced in the knee as: pain or swelling below the knee cap that limits walking, stair use, kneeling, sitting and athletic activity
  • Can be caused by several issues including: muscle imbalance, flat feet or excessive pronation, hip or knee weakness, and/or kneeling excessively
