Discover informative articles, helpful tips, and customer stories to help relieve your bursitis and tendonitis.

Introduction to Bursitis & Tendonitis

Bursitis and tendonitis are a result of the breakdown of the soft tissue around the muscles and bones, which cause inflammation and tender pain.

 

A ‘bursa’ is a small sac that cushions the movement of bones, muscles, tendons, and skin. ‘Bursitis’ is the inflammation of the bursa causing pain that is present during movement and rest. The tendons are fibrous, dense, and cord-like structures located where the muscles attach to a bone.

 

Tendinitis can result from your muscles being overused and is a short-term condition if it is treated early. Treatment for bursitis and tendonitis involves rest, ice, compression, and elevation.
