Bursitis Treatment | Charleston SC
BURSITIS TREATMENT AND RELIEF
According to the Mayo Clinic, bursitis is the painful inflammation of one of your 160 bursae. A bursa is a fluid-filled sac that cushions your bones, tendons, and muscles near your joints. Bursitis is most common at your shoulders, elbows, and hips, but it can also occur at your knee, heel, or at the base of your big toe. At Non-Surgical Spine Center, in Mt. Pleasant, SC we want to help you lessen the pain that comes with arthritis. Imagine: living a life free of pain!
TO AVOID DEVELOPING BURSITIS, TRY THESE USEFUL TIPS:
- Avoid repetitive motion.
- Avoid consistent pressure on a particular joint.
- Maintain a balanced diet.
- Exercise regularly.
- Stretch before rigorous activity.
- Use kneeling pads.
- Lift heavy objects using your knees.
- Wheel heavy loads instead of carrying them.
- Take frequent breaks when doing repetitive tasks.
