Bursitis is the inflammation of the small sacs of synovial fluid that help muscles and tendons slide easily across bone. It can occur in various parts of the body, most commonly the shoulder, knee & hip.
Did you know that Osteopaths are trained to treat all kinds of mechanical issues that cause bursitis? Combined with Pilates and/or other exercise classes, Osteopathy offers a great longer term solution to the underlying biomechanical issues. Rather than simply treating the symptoms with steroid injections, a targeted approach like this can have a much longer-lasting effect.
