What Is Bursitis?
Bursitis occurs when the bursa, a fluid-filled sac that cushions the bones in your joints, is damaged or irritated. The resulting inflammation can cause swelling and pain in the affected joint. Bursitis often results from chronic joint overuse, such as repetitive movements at work.
Acute bursitis can occur when a bursa is damaged by a sudden jolt or prolonged pressure on a hard surface, such as kneeling for long periods over the course of a day or two.
Where Does Bursitis Occur?
While commonly found in the knee or elbow, bursitis can occur in any joint in your body, including:
If you experience pain after prolonged or intense use of these joints, Specific Care Chiropractic can explain your treatment options.
Does Bursitis Go Away Without Treatment?
While some bursitis can be mild, it’s best to see a licensed physiotherapist who can suitably diagnose and treat you. If the bursitis is not treated properly, it can worsen and require medical intervention up to and including surgery.
If you believe you suffer from bursitis, whether from repetitive stress or acute impact, Specific Care Chiropractic has the knowledge and experience to create an effective treatment plan.
What Causes Bursitis in Davie, Florida?
Understanding the cause of your bursitis injury allows our physiotherapists and chiropractors to expertly treat it. Common causes of chronic and acute bursitis in Davie include:
- Repetitive motions, such as kneeling, sitting, standing, lifting, or reaching
- Unnatural twisting or turning of the joint
- Overexertion and muscle fatigue
- Incorrect posture
- Brunt force from a heavy object, such as during a car accident
You can also experience bursitis after placing extended pressure or stress on a joint. For instance, leaning your elbow on your desk for hours each day can cause bursitis injuries to the elbow and shoulder.
Our knowledgeable physicians will review your lifestyle and history, and conduct thorough diagnostics to address both the injury and its underlying causes.

What Is the Quickest Way to Recover From Bursitis in Davie?
Bursitis can last for years. If left untreated, it can worsen and create significant health issues. It is vital to complete the full scope of treatment prescribed by your physician at Specific Care Chiropractic.
Physiotherapy refers to corrective care, massage therapy, rehabilitation, stretching, ultrasound therapy, and electrical muscle stimulation (E-STIM). These treatments target areas in and around the affected joint. Massage, E-STIM, and ultrasound therapy encourage muscle healing. Stretches and exercises strengthen the area and improve the range of motion.
Chiropractic adjustments use controlled force to realign the spinal cord, facilitating healing and enhancing mobility. Depending on your specific injury, we may use both physiotherapy and chiropractic adjustment.
To ensure your safety and well-being, our licensed and trained chiropractors conduct thorough diagnostics, including an X-ray of the injured area, so they can create a treatment plan uniquely suited to you.
