What is Shoulder (Subacromial) Bursitis?
What Causes Shoulder (Subacromial) Bursitis?
An injury to the bursa in the shoulder can lead to Shoulder (Subacromial) Bursitis as can extensive use of the shoulder muscles. People who are in jobs doing overhead lifting of heavy objects and performing a lot of pulling are especially prone to this condition. The same can go for sports professionals involved in throwing or pitching. It is also believed that a slouching posture can increase the risk of being diagnosed with Shoulder (Subacromial) Bursitis.
When To Seek Treatment For Shoulder Bursitis?
When diagnosed with Shoulder (Subacromial) Bursitis, rest is recommended to allow the shoulder to heal. Bowen Therapy may help increase blood circulation to the bursa and surrounding structures to increase the rate of healing and speed up recovery, so that significantly less resting time is needed than if left untreated. Bowen Treatment for bursas can be very effective at reducing the pain,
As with most conditions, earlier treatment will facilitate a faster recovery and reduce the chance of re-occurance. Also, if the pain in a shoulder due to bursitis restricts the shoulder's movement for an extended period of time, this could then potentially lead to frozen shoulder. Without treatment and continuing the activity that is aggravating the bursa, the pain will likely get worse.
