Do you suffer from Shoulder Tendonitis, Bursitis, or Impingement?

What are Shoulder Tendonitis, Bursitis and Impingement?

Shoulder tendinitis, shoulder bursitis, and impingement are actually all closely linked.

Tendonitis is the inflammation of a tendon. In the shoulder, tendinitis usually affects the tendons of the biceps or rotator cuff as a result of pinching from surrounding structures.

When tendinitis affects the rotator cuff, the inflamed tendon may swell and get trapped beneath the acromion, making shoulder movement extremely uncomfortable. This is called shoulder impingement.

Bursitis is inflammation of the bursae. The bursae are fluid-filled sacs found next to tendons or large joints. They are used to make movement easier, inflammation often occurring in conjunction with tendonitis.

How to Treat Shoulder Bursitis

The first step in treating shoulder bursitis is to reduce shoulder inflammation. I always tell my patients that prevention is the best cure.  I know that it is difficult, but you must try to avoid doing things that cause the inflammation. For example, do not reach for things if that action causes pain.

If the pain persists anti-inflammatory medicines be required. However, anti-inflammatory drugs should not be taken continuously.

Once the initial inflammation subsides, some simple shoulder exercises should be enough to help treat this condition.

If the condition fails to improve, cortisone injections or steroids may be recommended by your doctor and in a small number of cases shoulder surgery may be required.

Bursitis Treatment

Bursitis often is not usually a serious disorder. It may clear up on it’s own in a week or so, especially if you keep pressure off the tender spot while it remains swollen. If bursitis persists, you need to consult a physician. Then, the physician will examine your joint to make the diagnosis. To bring down any swelling and relieve pain and stiffness, non-steroidal drugs (NSAIDS) may be prescribed.

The doctor may draw off the fluid with a needle and give injections of a corticosteroid medication along with a local anesthetic, to relieve pain and inflammation.

Bursitis often recurs in the same place. You may ask your doctor or physical therapist to tell you about exercises to help prevent formation of scar tissue, and do them faithfully. It is important to learn to avoid putting pressure over the area that is inflamed. Occasionally, the bursa can become infected and shoulder surgery becomes necessary. If conservative treatment fails, surgical removal of the bursa may be necessary.
