Shoulder Bursitis: Your Path to Recovery with Physiotherapy

April 13, 2024

Welcome, fellow active enthusiasts! Are you currently sidelined by shoulder bursitis, longing to get back to your favourite activities pain-free? If so, you’re in the right place. Let’s explore how physiotherapy can be your ticket to overcoming shoulder bursitis and reclaiming your mobility.

Shoulder bursitis occurs when the fluid-filled sacs (bursae) around the shoulder joint become inflamed, often due to overuse, injury, or trauma. This inflammation leads to pain, swelling, and limited range of motion, hindering your ability to perform everyday tasks and participate in sports or fitness activities.

Physiotherapy offers a tailored approach to treating shoulder bursitis, addressing both the symptoms and underlying causes of your condition. Here’s how I can help you on your journey to recovery:


Pain Relief Techniques:

Using a combination of manual therapy and targeted exercises, I can help alleviate pain and reduce inflammation in your shoulder, allowing you to move more comfortably.


Restoring Mobility:

Through gentle stretches and range of motion exercises, I’ll work with you to gradually improve flexibility in your shoulder joint, making everyday movements easier and less painful.


Strengthening and Capacity Building:

Weakness in the muscles surrounding the shoulder joint can contribute to bursitis and impede your recovery. I’ll design a personalised strengthening program to target these muscles, enhancing stability and reducing the risk of future injuries.


Education and Self-Care:

Empowering you with knowledge is key to long-term success. I’ll educate you on symptom modification strategies, ergonomic principles, and home exercises to complement our in-clinic sessions, empowering you to take control of your recovery and prevent future flare-ups.


Personalised Care:

Every individual is unique, and so is their journey to recovery. I’ll work closely with you to develop a treatment plan tailored to your specific needs, goals, and lifestyle, ensuring that you receive the personalised care and attention you deserve.


Embracing the Process:

Recovering from shoulder bursitis requires patience, commitment, and a positive mindset. While it may take time to see significant improvements, know that I’m here to support you every step of the way. Together, we’ll work towards your goal of returning to your active lifestyle stronger and healthier than ever before.
