How Chiropractic Helps with Shoulder Bursitis

Shoulder bursitis is a painful condition that can severely limit your mobility and quality of life. Often caused by repetitive movements or stress on the joints, this inflammation of the bursae can be more than just pain: it can be a serious impediment to your daily activities. But did you know that chiropractic can offer significant relief? Let's explore how.

What is Shoulder Bursitis?

Bursitis is inflammation of the bursae, which are small fluid-filled sacs that act as cushions between the bones and soft tissues of the joints. In the shoulder, these bursae facilitate the smooth movement of tendons and muscles over the shoulder bone. When they become inflamed, every movement can become a source of pain and discomfort.

Common Causes of Shoulder Bursitis

  • Repetitive movements: Activities such as painting, throwing or lifting objects repeatedly.
  • Trauma: Direct blows or falls on the shoulder.
  • Medical Conditions: Arthritis or infections can also cause bursitis.

Chiropractic Care for Shoulder Bursitis

The chiropractic approach to treating shoulder bursitis goes beyond simply relieving pain. It seeks to correct the underlying causes of inflammation and improve the overall functionality of the shoulder.

Evaluation and Diagnosis

A chiropractor will begin with a detailed examination to determine the root cause of your shoulder pain. This may include mobility testing, posture analysis, and, if necessary, x-rays. Correctly identifying whether the pain is truly due to bursitis or another condition is crucial to effective care.

Chiropractic Adjustments

Chiropractic adjustments can be very effective in reducing pressure on the inflamed bursa and restoring normal shoulder alignment and mobility. These settings help:

  • Reduce inflammation and pain.
  • Improve shoulder mobility and function.
  • Prevent future injuries by improving posture and body mechanics.

In addition to adjustments, chiropractors can provide rehabilitative exercises designed to strengthen shoulder muscles and improve flexibility.

Long-Term Benefits of Chiropractic Care

Unlike other therapies that only focus on symptoms, chiropractic seeks to correct the root problem. This not only relieves symptoms in the short term, but also helps prevent future recurrences by improving shoulder function and overall spinal health.


If you suffer from shoulder bursitis, chiropractic offers a holistic and effective solution, free of drugs and surgery. With an approach that goes beyond simple pain relief, chiropractic can help you regain your mobility, reduce pain, and improve your quality of life. Don't let shoulder pain stop you. Consider chiropractic as a viable and natural option to take care of your health.
