What is bursitis and what causes it?



Bursitis is the inflammation of the bursa, small fluid-filled sacs that cushion and lubricate joints. It is commonly caused by repetitive movements, overuse of a joint, trauma, or infection.


How can I recognize the symptoms of bursitis?

The most common symptoms of bursitis include pain, swelling, tenderness, and limited range of motion in the affected joint. The area may also feel warm to the touch.

How does inflammation contribute to bursitis?

Inflammation plays a key role in the development of bursitis. When the bursa becomes irritated or damaged, the body initiates an inflammatory response, leading to pain and swelling.


What is SoftWave therapy and how does it work?

SoftWave Therapy, also known as shockwave therapy or extracorporeal shockwave therapy (ESWT), is a non-invasive treatment option for various musculoskeletal conditions, including bursitis. This innovative therapy utilizes high-energy sound waves that are directed towards the affected area of the body. These sound waves stimulate the body's natural healing processes by increasing blood flow circulation, decreasing inflammation, breaking down scar tissue/calcifications, promoting the production of collagen, and stimulates the migration of stem cells and growth factors to the injured areas being treated, therefore promoting tissue regeneration.


What are the benefits of SoftWave Therapy for bursitis patients?

SoftWave Therapy offers several benefits for bursitis patients, including pain relief, reduced inflammation, improved mobility, and accelerated healing. It is also a non-surgical and drug-free treatment option.


How does SoftWave Therapy differ from traditional treatments for bursitis?

SoftWave Therapy differs from traditional treatments for bursitis as it targets the underlying causes of the condition rather than just managing the symptoms. It also has a lower risk of side effects compared to medications or surgery.
