| Advanced Physiotherapy
Shoulder Bursitis

* Shoulder bursitis is the most common type of bursitis. It occurs when excess fluid builds up in a bursa, the cushioning pad between bones and tissue in joints.

* Many people with shoulder bursitis also have shoulder tendinitis.

* The conditions cause pain and can affect arm mobility.


* pain around the outside or tip of the shoulder.

*pain when the shoulder is touched.

* reduced range of movement in the shoulder joint.

* swelling and redness around the shoulder.

* shoulder pain when the arm is raised, such as reaching shelves or washing hair.

*The pain may become worse at night, especially when lying on the affected shoulder. It may also get worse after the shoulder has been kept still for a while.

* Shoulder bursitis is most common in the subacromial bursa. This is a large bursa at the tip of the shoulder.

  Causes of Shoulder Bursitis

* Shoulder bursitis commonly develops over time from repetitive shoulder motion or overuse. It is common in people who perform manual labor requiring frequent reaching overhead or lifting, as well as athletes who participate in sports that require throwing a ball or using a racquet.

* Direct trauma, such as a fall onto the affected shoulder

* Shoulder impingement (shoulder pain caused by friction between a tendon and the shoulder blade)

*Rotator cuff tendonitis or tendon tears

* Infection

* Bursae can also become inflamed as a side effect of other medical conditions, such as

.Autoimmune conditions (such as rheumatoid arthritis)



.Uremia (blood issue caused by kidney failure)


Physiotherapy management

Range of Motion Exercises: Exercises to maintain and improve shoulder mobility.

1.Doorway Stretch:

*.Stand in an open doorway.

*.Place your palms flat on each side of the doorway. Bend your elbows and place your hands at or just below shoulder height.

*.Step forward with one foot until you feel a slight pull across your chest and the front of your shoulders. DO NOT lean forward.

*.Hold for 30 seconds.

*.Release and repeat 3 times.

2.Posterior Shoulder Stretch

*.Hold the elbow of the same arm that is experiencing symptoms

*.Place your hand on your opposite shoulder

*.Gently pull your elbow across your body – allowing your shoulder to stretch for around 15 seconds .

 Strengthening Exercises: Strengthening the muscles around the shoulder can provide better support and stability.


*. Reducing shoulder movement can stop the bursa from getting more irritated and give it time to heal. Along with rest, some gentle shoulder exercises can stop the joint from becoming stiff.

Ultrasonic Therapy :

Ultrasonic therapy is a noninvasive treatment in which  waves are used to penetrate soft tissues, increasing blood flow. This can help relieve pain, improve circulation, and promote tissue healing.
