Most of the patients that I see who have Shoulder Bursitis have never heard of the condition until they are diagnosed with it!
Shoulder Bursitis can develop quickly.
Bursitis symptoms include aching, swelling, and limited shoulder movement. Sometime discoloring of the injured area also occurs.
Bursitis can be caused by a bone spur. (A bone spur is calcium deposit in the rotator cuff.)
Torn, frayed, or irritated tendons can cause shoulder bursitis. If rotator cuff muscles weaken, they may fail to support the shoulder, making actions such as reaching overhead, swimming, throwing, and hair brushing difficult and painful.
Sometimes bursitis develops alongside other diseases such as arthritis or gout.
