Find Treatment for Bursa Inflammation (Bursitis) in Freehold and Monroe Township, NJ
Bursa inflammation (also known as bursitis of the shoulder) occurs when there is visible swelling and redness between the top of the arm bone and the tip of the shoulder. Between these bones are the rotator cuff tendons and a fluid-filled sac called a bursa, which protects the tendons. In a healthy shoulder, the tendons slide effortlessly within this space during movement, but for those with bursa inflammation, the space becomes too narrow, causing the tendons and bursa to become inflamed and swell.
Symptoms and Causes of Bursitis
Bursitis is most often caused by repetitive, minor impacts on the area through activities and sports, such as painting, scrubbing, gardening, throwing, pitching, skiing, tennis, and golfing. Age can also play a role, as tendons tend to become less elastic with age, and therefore unable to tolerate as much stress.
The most common symptoms of bursa inflammation in the shoulder is pain. The pain may build up gradually or become sudden and severe, leading to a significant loss of motion in the shoulder.
