Are you struggling with shoulder bursitis? You’re not alone. In fact, this condition is quite common, particularly among people who have a sedentary lifestyle or who perform repetitive motions with their shoulders. If you’re looking for relief, osteopathy may be able to help. Here’s what you need to know about this treatment option.
Before we dive into how osteopathy can help, let’s first take a moment to understand what shoulder bursitis is. This condition occurs when the bursae (fluid-filled sacs that cushion the bones, tendons, and muscles) in the shoulder become inflamed. The most common symptom is pain, which can range from mild to severe. Other symptoms may include stiffness, tenderness, and reduced range of motion in the affected shoulder.
Osteopathy is a type of manual therapy that focuses on treating the musculoskeletal system. It can be an effective treatment for shoulder bursitis because it can help reduce inflammation and pain while also improving range of motion. Osteopaths use a variety of techniques, including massaging the muscles and joints, manipulating the soft tissues, and stretching the muscles.
One of the benefits of osteopathy is that it takes a whole-body approach. This means that your osteopath will not only treat your shoulder but will also assess your posture and look for any other issues that may be contributing to your shoulder pain. This comprehensive approach can provide you with long-lasting relief from your symptoms.
