Tendonitis or Bursitis

What is Tendonitis or Bursitis?

This is where there is inflammation and swelling in the shoulder joint area (also known as impingement syndrome). Usually the tendons in this area have enough space to move back and forth but when the area becomes too narrow that is when the tendons get inflamed causing swelling to the surrounding area.
 
Symptoms
  • Pain when carrying out overhead movement
  • Pain whilst sleeping at night
  • Pain on outside of shoulder or upper arm
Cause
  • In many individuals who suffer from this problem the bones are slightly different in shape causing this problem
  • Injury to the area can also cause similar problems
Treatment
  • The use of compression and ice packs (Hot and Cold Gel pack) can be used to treat the swelling in the area
  • Shoulder supports will help with elevating the pain by providing warmth and compression
  • In some cases surgery may be required
Prevention
  • Avoiding injury or overexertion to the shoulder area can help prevent this type of condition
