Healing Shoulder Bursitis

Treatment & Physical Therapy

If you’re suffering from shoulder bursitis, it can be incredibly frustrating to deal with the pain and loss of mobility that comes with this condition. 

Thankfully, there are several different treatments that can help you manage your symptoms and get back to normal life as quickly as possible, including the best shoulder bursitis treatment and physical therapy options available in Little Rock. 

What is Shoulder Bursitis?

Shoulder bursitis is a common injury causing inflammation of a small sac of fluid (bursae) located near your shoulder joint. 

The bursae are small, fluid-filled sacs acting as cushions for your muscles and joints, providing them with protection from wear and tear as you move. When these bursae become inflamed due to repetitive overuse or injury, they form painful knots called bursitis under your skin.

Symptoms of Shoulder Bursitis

The most common symptoms of shoulder bursitis are pain in one or both shoulders, swelling of surrounding tissues and even trouble moving your arm. You may also experience tenderness when applying pressure or touching overlying tissues. 

At first, you may just feel stiffness in your shoulder that improves as you move it around or stretch out. As bursitis progresses, however, there can be a sudden increase in pain when lifting your arm up over your head or reaching behind you.
