What is Bursitis and how can we help you?
Bursitis is inflammation in one or more fluid-filled sac, called bursae, which rest where muscles and tendons slide across the bone to promote fluid movement. This can be very painful and cause the muscles to possibly stiffen, sometimes leaving a fluid-filled bump in the skin where the inflamed bursae is located.
Causes and Risk Factors
It is commonly caused by excessive pressure and repetitive movement, but can also be caused by trauma and auto-immune disorders. Participating in repetitive activities or sports, improper posture, a chronic medical condition, and aging are all risk factors.
Bursitis can be treated with some of the services we offer at STG Health and Wellness. Our trained specialists are honoured to help you with physiotherapy, laser therapy, and athletic therapy to help bring down the inflammation and ease your pain.
