Bursitis

What is Bursitis?

Bursitis is an inflammation of a small fluid-filled sac, called a bursa, located near a joint, bone or tendon.

 

The bursa, which protects the area from friction, can become inflamed from repetitive motion or irritation. 

 

For example in the foot there are very common from rubbing on various shoes. 

Symptoms of bursitis include :

  • Sometimes there is a palpable lump where the bursa is distending the area

  • localised tenderness

  • swelling and pain. 

Current management techniques

  • Rest Ice, Compression, Elevation: all these techniques help to control the swelling and pain.

  • Reduce any friction or pressure from external sources

  • Minimisation of strength losses via specific exercises

  • Minimisation of range of motion loss via specific exercises

  • Rehabilitation is important as a lot arch pain can develop and get worse quickly due to the number of steps we take each day
