Bursitis is the irritation and subsequent inflammation of a sac filled with lubricant that sits between tissues like bone. This sac or bursa decreases the friction between these tissues helping to prevent irritation. As we get older this tissue becomes less elastic and more prone to injury either through over use or direct impact. Misaligned joints, poor posture, poor stretching and poor conditioning prior to exercise are also all contributing factors to development of bursitis. Bursitis patients also often compensatory misalignments in the joints along with muscle spasm I response to the pain and loss of range of motion caused by the bursitis. Here at Back to Back Chiropractic, your San Jose Chiropractor we will use a variety of techniques to reduce the inflammation, re-align the joints and reduce muscles spasm and adhesions to you back to normal as quickly as possible.
