A bursa (fluid-filled sac) and rotator cuff tendons are present between the shoulder bones. If it becomes inflamed, it is called Shoulder Bursitis. Common symptoms may include redness, swelling, aches and stiffness. The pain hurts more when you move your shoulder or press it. Overuse and repetitive shoulder movements may result in shoulder bursitis. Overhead activities increase friction between tissue and bones.

This friction can irritate and inflame bursae. Bursitis may occur when the fluid builds up in the bursa sacs. People with diabetes, arthritis, thyroid disease and kidney disease may be more prone to shoulder bursitis. In the initial stages, your GP may perform a physical check-up to assess the shoulder pain and range of motion. You may also get some diagnostic tests to check the extent of the injury. X-rays are used to check bone spurs, arthritis, and other problems. MRI and ultrasound help assess the inflammation in the bursa. A joint aspiration test helps determine if there is gout or infection in the bursa. Your GP may also suggest some medications and non-surgical treatments, which help relieve the symptoms.

Temporarily stopping all physical activities involving the shoulder provide you relaxation and comfort. Ice packs help reduce inflammation and pain relievers and non-steroid anti-inflammatory drugs, NSAIDs, help reduce swelling and pain.

Physical therapy exercises, antibiotics, corticosteroids, and bursa injections are the best medications and non-surgical treatments. If non-surgical treatments do not work and the symptoms worsen, your GP may recommend surgery to remove damaged tissues and inflamed bursa to make space for the bones and tendons to move easily.

Healthcare professionals also suggest some preventive measures to reduce the risks of shoulder bursitis. Stretching and strengthening exercises are essential. Before going for any activity, you must warm up your shoulders. Avoid repetitive movements and wear shoulder braces to ease the stress on the shoulder.
