Bursitis

Overview

Bursitis is inflammation or the swelling of a bursa, which is a small fluid-filled sac which forms under the skin, usually over the joints and between tendons and bones.

There are around 160 potential bursae in the human body which occur anywhere friction occurs. These bursae act as cushions between two surfaces that rub against each other, such as bones, muscles, joints and tendons. Their job is to help reduce friction and they do this because they are lined with special cells called synovial cells, which produce a liquid that lubricates the moving parts of the body.

Injury or repetitive strain can cause the bursa to become inflamed. This can often be the case with runners and joggers who increase the risk of bursitis in their ankles. Less commonly, bursitis can occur as a result of an infection or as a complication of certain conditions, such as rheumatoid arthritis.

It’s possible for any bursa to become inflamed, but the most common places where bursitis occurs are the:

  • shoulder
  • elbow
  • ankle
  • knee
  • hip
  • thigh

Symptoms of bursitis include:

  • pain – usually a dull ache in the affected body part that’s made worse by movement or pressure
  • tenderness in the affected body part
  • swelling of the affected body part
  • loss of movement in the affected body part

Septic bursitis is bursitis that’s caused by infection. Additional symptoms of septic bursitis include:

  • a high temperature (fever) of 38ºC (100.4ºF) or above
  • feeling shivery
  • the affected body part feeling warm to the touch
  • redness of the affected body part
  • having cellulitis (an infection of the deeper layers of the skin)
  • having some broken skin over the bursitis

Always consult your licensed health practitioner if you have the symptoms of a fever because a fever is usually an indication that you have an infection. If your symptoms don’t improve within a couple of weeks, we also recommend you seek advice.

The risk of developing bursitis is increased if you regularly do an activity that involves a lot of repetitive movement. For example, darts players who repeatedly bend and straighten their elbow may get bursitis of the elbow. People who do a lot of kneeling, such as carpet fitters and gardeners, have a high risk of developing bursitis in their knee (known as ‘housemaid’s knee’).

Taking precautions, such as wearing knee pads or warming up before exercise, may help to reduce your risk of getting bursitis.

Bursitis can develop in three main ways:

  • injury
  • infection
  • when you have a pre-existing health condition that causes inflammation of the bursa

If a bursa is injured, the tissue inside it can become irritated, resulting in inflammation (swelling). In most cases, the injury develops over a prolonged period of time as a result of overuse of the joints, muscles and tendons that are near the bursae. Repetitive movement is a particular risk for this type of injury.

Some of the ways that specific parts of the body can become injured and cause bursitis are listed below.

  • The shoulder can become injured by overhead lifting or reaching.
  • The elbow can become injured by repeatedly bending and straightening it, or by falling on it. This may affect certain athletes, such as gymnasts or hockey players.
  • The knee can become injured by repeated movement or repeated kneeling (bursitis of the knee is known as ‘housemaid’s knee’). This may affect people with certain jobs, such as carpet layers, or certain sports players, such as footballers.
  • The ankle can become injured by excessive walking (particularly if you’re not wearing suitable walking shoes), or by activities such as ice skating or athletics.
  • The hips can become injured by running.

A bursa may also be injured if subjected to a sudden impact, such as banging your elbow on a piece of heavy furniture or by falling with heavy pressure on to your knees.

Bursae that are near the surface of your skin, such as those near your elbow, can become infected. Infection can occur if bacteria on the surface of your skin find their way into cuts and grazes and then move into a bursa. Bursitis caused by an infection is known as septic bursitis.

The immune system (the body’s natural defence against injury and illness) is usually very effective at preventing this sort of infection, so septic bursitis tends to only occur in people who have a weakened immune system. Factors that are known to weaken the immune system include:

  • diabetes
  • HIV or AIDS
  • taking corticosteroids
  • chemotherapy
  • radiotherapy
  • heavy alcohol consumption

A number of health conditions can sometimes cause inflammation of a bursa.

These conditions include:

  • gout – a condition that’s caused by a build-up of uric acid in the blood
  • rheumatoid arthritis – a condition where the immune system attacks the linings of the joints
  • scleroderma – a condition that causes hardening of the skin
  • ankylosing spondylitis – a type of long-term arthritis that affects parts of the spine
  • systemic lupus erythematosus – a poorly understood condition that affects many of the body’s tissues and organs

Quick Action Plan for Bursitis

  1. Acupuncture treatment helps to reduce the body’s aggressive defenses that inadvertently attack its own joint tissue.
  2. Massage affected joints with rosemary, benzoin, chamomile, camphor, juniper, or lavender.
  3. Diet plays an integral part in reducing or preventing the onset of bursitis and all types of arthritic conditions.  A diet rich in an abundant selection of fresh vegetables, and a wide variety of sweet and non-sweet fruits, soaked nuts and seeds, and whole grains is recommended.
  4. Tomatoes, cayenne, black and long pepper should be avoided if you suffer from rheumatoid arthritis. Minimize protein intake, choose small quantities of fish, legumes, eggs, soaked nuts and seeds. Eliminate beef, chicken, shellfish, and pork completely. Eat no hydrogenated fats, processed sugars, dairy products, alcohol, coffee, or black tea.
  5. Use the following powerful aids to speed and assist healing: Goji, Acai and Noni juice, bee pollen, royal jelly, and evening primrose oil are recommended, as is Shark cartilage, Wobenzyme, DMSO, MSM Manganese Cetyl myristoleate with lipase, and vitamin C.
  6. Read the pH section.
  7. Test for food and environmental allergies and avoid all foods and substances to which you are allergic.
  8. Cleansing and Detoxification including colon and bowel cleansing therapies, fasting, kidney and gallbladder flushes, physical medicine, and homeopathic remedies.
  9. Isometric exercises, stretching, and yoga can help ease arthritis pain.
  10. Constitutional hydrotherapy (apply two to five times weekly) or heating compress (apply once daily to affected areas).
  11. Drink the juice of half a lemon before every meal and before going to bed.

As with all diseases this did not happen overnight. The very first thing you must do is see a licensed health professional. Find a list of practitioners in your local area here

Here are some things you can discuss with your practitioner:

Health Protocols

Detox:

  • Eliminate Candida: Click here to find out how
  • Do the Hydrogen Peroxide Protocol to strengthen the immune system:
  • Drink 3oz of Colloidal Silver, three or four times a day for 60 days www.colloidsforlife.com Silver has long been recognised as a powerful natural antibiotic.  Colloidal silver is silver that has been removed electronically from its source and then suspended in water.  It is used to treat a myriad of diseases.
  • Go on a fast to clear your system of toxic waste  www.wecarespa.com

Hydrotherapy:

Hydrotherapy is the application of water, ice, steam and hot and cold temperatures to maintain and restore health. Treatments include full body immersion, steam baths, saunas, sitz baths, colonic irrigation and the application of hot and/or cold compresses. Hydrotherapy is effective for treating a wide range of conditions and can easily be used in the home as part of a self-care program. Many Naturopathic Physicians, Physical Therapists and Day Spas use Hydrotherapy as part of treatment.

There are several at-home hydrotherapy treatments.  For treating rheumatoid arthritis, we recommended constitutional hydrotherapy (apply two to five times weekly) or a heating compress (apply once daily to affected areas). Please seek the advice of your alternative health care practitioner before undergoing these procedures to make sure they are appropriate for you.

  • We recommend regular colonics to remove toxicity from the body.  Read more about colonics by clicking here.  Find a practitioner here.
  • Most of the water that we drink is very acidic and in order to heal our bodies need a more alkaline state.  During the programme drink alkalised water, which you can buy from Real Water.
  • Take a bath as often as possible up to once a day with two litres of 35% food grade Hydrogen Peroxide.

It is important to not add further toxicity to your system so try to adhere to the following:

  • Do not consume any artificial sweeteners, such as Splenda, NutraSweet or Aspartame
  • Do not consume high fructose corn syrup or mono-sodium glutamate.
  • Do not drink any carbonated beverages.
  • Avoid all fast food restaurants.
  • Avoid all canned food.
  • Eliminate conventional dairy products.  The best dairy products are raw, unpasteurised and homogenised dairy from grass fed cows.  If this is unavailable, then buy organic dairy.
  • Avoid conventional beef.  The best beef is organic grass fed beef. The second best is organic meat; this includes beef, veal, lamb, chicken and turkey. Check out www.grasslandbeef.com.

Supplements:

Many researchers believe a proper balance of vitamins and minerals is essential in the treatment of arthritis and related conditions. Large quantities of vitamin C are often recommended. Acting both as an antioxidant and anti-inflammatory agent, vitamin C helps repair and maintain healthy connective tissue. It is essential for collagen production and the maintenance of joint lining, helps tissue repair, and reduces the bruising and swelling often associated with arthritis.

Vitamins A, B1, B6, E, and niacinamide (a form of vitamin B3) have also proven effective in treating and preventing arthritis. Vitamin D is a fat-soluble nutrient, considered to be both a vitamin and a hormone. It controls the absorption of calcium and phosphorus used in bone formation.

Other dietary supplements that have anti-inflammatory and antioxidant effects important for arthritis prevention and treatment include boron, zinc, copper, selenium, manganese, pantothenic acid, and sulfur. Bee pollen, royal jelly (another bee product rich in pantothenic acid), eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA), and evening primrose oil are also beneficial in alleviating arthritis symptoms, especially among rheumatoid arthritics. All these supplements, though, should be taken only under supervision by a qualified health professional.

Manganese has many functions in the body, including normal growth and metabolism. It helps to activate enzymes, is used for normal bone development, and acts as an anti-inflammatory. Patients with rheumatoid arthritis are usually significantly deficient in manganese and supplementation is recommended.

Cetyl myristoleate, a rare anti-arthritis substance now created synthetically, acts as a lubricant for joints and muscles, modulates immune system function, and has anti-inflammatory effects.  Cetyl myristoleate is usually given orally for one-month period, at a 10-15g dosage.  It is also available as a cream.  This fatty substance should be taken in conjunction with 100mg of lipase, an enzyme that digests fat.

Dimethylsulfoxide (DMSO)* is a source of sulfur (derived from wood pulp, garlic oil, or as a byproduct of petroleum) and is thought to be a free-radical scavenger with anti-inflammatory properties. Methylsulfonylmethane (MSM) is a sister compound of DMSO derived from food sources. MSM is naturally produced in the body, but levels decrease with age and in degenerative illnesses such as arthritis. These supplements can reduce inflammation and scar tissue, relieve pain, and increase blood flow for improved exchange of nutrients. Of special relevance in rheumatoid arthritis, MSM can help normalize the immune system and reduce the autoimmune response.

*Caution: When applying DMSO on the body use thoroughly clean hands and clean cotton swabs. Take care to be impeccable because whatever substance comes in contact with DMSO gel is absorbed quickly and driven deeply into the body. Avoid contact with dirt until the area is completely dry.

Shark cartilage in capsule form is now being used to combat the pain of arthritis. Shark cartilage contains large amounts of mucopolysaccharides (carbohydrates that form chemical bonds with water), which stimulate the immune system and reduce the pain and inflammation of arthritis. Shark cartilage is orally administered at least 30 minutes before meals. Enzymes, especially Wobenzyme, a pancreatic enzyme formula, are also important for helping to reduce symptoms of inflammation.

  • Take Vitamin D3 50,000-100,000 International Units a day for periods of 4 weeks at a time.
  • Wholefood supplements are the best way of ensuring your nutritional needs are met.  The best we know on the market is Kevin Trudeau’s “KT Daily” product.  You can find more details here.
  • Take an Omega 3 supplement:

Krill oil

Fish oil

Cod liver oil

Vegetarian

Ayurvedic Medicine

As always the fastest most effective way to receive tailored advice to your own situation, you should visit a local licensed practitioner. Find your closest Ayurvedic practitioners here:

Here are some remedies that your practitioner may suggest:

  • Application of warm olive oil, sesame oil, sandal wood paste, eucalyptus oil, tea tree oil and neem oil are effective herbal remedies for Bursitis which provide instant respite to the patient.
  • Deficiency of calcium and vitamin B12 leads to swelling of the bursa and consequently the concerned organ. Therefore oral intake of calcium, vitamin B12 and magnesium is also a part of ayurvedic treatment for Bursitis.
  • Prepare a mixture by boiling a tbsp of cayenne pepper with apple cider vinegar and apply it over affected areas for quick results.
  • Keep a grated potato overnight in a cup of water and drink the strained liquid before breakfast on a daily basis to soothe the pain.
  • Sea waters also have therapeutic properties and have proved to be very good in case of chronic Bursitis.
  • The application of Rumalaya Forte and Rumalaya Gel is recommended as it has an ayurvedic formulation. They are very potent in lessening the inflammation. Herbs such as boswellia, licorice, guggul, five-leaved chaste tree form the base of this ayurvedic treatment.
  • Application of Ashwagandha, Turmeric and Boswellia are recommended to reduce stress on joints and inflammation.
  • Drink two cups of liquorice tea every day to get rid of inflammation and consequent pain.
  • Consume broth made from seaweeds such as kelp which is rich source of minerals to replenish the deficiency which causes Bursitis.

Yoga is also recommended to alleviate the symptoms of bursitis.

Traditional Chinese Medicine

To receive bespoke advice based upon your own situation you should visit a local licensed practitioner. Find your closest Traditional Chinese Medicine practitioners here:

Here are some remedies that your practitioner may suggest:

Acupuncture for Bursitis

Acupuncture can relieve the pain of bursitis and restore function to the joint. But perhaps more importantly, this therapy can address the underlying imbalance in energy, or qi, that predisposed the person to bursitis in the first place.

Angelica Dang Gui and He Shou Wu are formulas which are often prescribed, and Ji Gu Cao tea can also be beneficial.

Aromatherapy

To help reduce inflammation there are several essential oils that can be used. There are a number of essential oils that have heating and anti-inflammatory properties to varying degrees.

Helichrysum and German Chamomile are known for their anti-inflammatory and pain relieving properties: As are Eucalyptus polybractea or Eucalyptus radiata, too.

Lavender can help if you don’t have these other oils available. Other anti-inflammatory oils include: Basil, Geranium, Rosemary,  Sweet Birch and Wintergreen  (both of these are okay for short term use but not chronic ailments).

Warming essential oils include Ginger , Black Pepper, Sweet Marjoram, Juniper berry ,Bay Laurel and Peppermint. Other recommended oils are clove oil , cinnamon leaf, Thyme, Oregano and Fennel. Some essential oils can cause skin irritation (redness) if blended in too strong concentration. Once you have reduced the initial inflammation you will want to begin to use that particular joint very slowly at first. You will need to strengthen the muscle and tendons slowly to help prevent future recurrences.

Warming up the joint with a massage oil, lotion or cream using a variety of essential oils that not only warm the joint capsule, but also helps to reduce inflammation and discomfort will help to speed the healing process.

Here is a recipe that can be used for the first few days to help with the inflammation and pain. You can mix it in a light lotion or add to your choice of carrier oils. Castor oil is known to help with soft tissue injuries and arthritis so you may want to consider using it as part of your carrier oil blend. Because Castor oil has a tendency to be rather thick and sticky, you may want to ‘thin’ it down using a lighter oil such as Sunflower oil

You can also have this  recipe blended in lotion or cream so that it won’t stain clothing or feel too ‘oily’ like some carrier oils can.

Bursitis Blend 
Helichrysum – 6 drops
German Chamomile – 6 drops
Sweet Marjoram – 4 drops
Sweet Birch – 4 drops
Lavender – 4 drops
Ginger – 4 drops
Juniper berry – 4 drops

Add all of the above to 2 ounces of your choice of carrier oil or lotion

Blend the essential oils together in a Glass bottle or Beaker. Then add to your oil, lotion or cream . Blend or stir well. Apply as needed to the affected joint.

To ensure positive results, always check that the essential oil is a 100% pure plant distillation and that it comes from a reputable source.

Homeopathic Medicine

Owing to the principles behind homeopathy it is essential you see a licensed practitioner to receive your own personalised prescription.  Find your closest Homeopath here:

Here are some remedies that your practitioner may suggest:

Arnica montana: This remedy is especially useful when bursitis is related to traumatic injury or strain. The affected area feels bruised and sore, and the person tries to avoid being touched, because of pain.

Belladonna: Bursitis with a sensation of heat and throbbing, along with intense discomfort caused by jarring and touch, suggests a need for this remedy. The area often is red and swollen, and the overlying skin feels hot.

Bryonia: When bursitis pain has a stitching or tearing quality and is worse from even the slightest motion, this remedy is a likely choice. The affected area is hot and swollen, feeling worse from warmth.

Ferrum phosphoricum: Inflammation, especially in the right shoulder—with pain that extends to the wrist, or sometimes to the neck—may be soothed by this remedy. Gentle motion and cool applications often bring relief. The person’s face may be flushed and pinkish.

Kalmia latifolia: Pain that starts in a higher joint (especially the hip or shoulder), and shoots or travels downward, suggests a need for this remedy. Right shoulder bursitis is common and extends to the elbow, wrist, or hand. Pain and inflammation may come on suddenly, and often shift around. Discomfort is worse from motion, worse at night, and has a neuralgic character.

Rhus toxicodendron: This remedy is helpful to those who experience stiffness and pain on initial movement, gradually improving as motion continues—although too much motion can also aggravate the pain. Pain is often worse during sleep and on waking in the morning. Cold, damp weather can increase the problems, and warm applications and baths bring relief.

Ruta graveolens: If bursitis is acute—with swelling, great stiffness, and aching pain—this remedy may be indicated. Problems can be aggravated by stretching, and the person often feels fatigued or weak. Cold and dampness make things worse, and lying down to rest may help. This remedy is often useful for bursitis after injuries.

Sanguinaria: This remedy is often indicated for bursitis in the shoulder—especially the right shoulder. Raising the arm is difficult, and pain can extend down the arm if the shoulder is moved. Discomfort may be worse at night in bed, from lying on the affected part, and also when turning over.

Sulphur: This remedy may be indicated for bursitis—especially on the left side—with inflammation and burning pain. Symptoms will be aggravated by warmth and bathing

Herbs

Herbal supplements that can help reduce bursitis-related inflammation include boswellia, turmeric, white willow and evening primrose oil. Arnica and rue are other herbs that may also be helpful in treating your bursitis. Bromelain, a mixture of protein-digesting enzymes found in pineapple, is helpful for joint pain and soft tissue injuries. Comfrey is also recommended.

Other

Bodywork: Several forms of bodywork can be helpful for people with bursitis as they can ease pain and bring the body back to a healthier, prime state, allowing it to heal itself. For example, massage therapy can reduce the pain of bursitis and increase blood supply to the tissues. A Swedish massage treatment for bursitis may use rhythmic, flowing strokes that are directed toward the heart.

Several bodywork techniques hold promise for bursitis sufferers:

  • Applied kinesiology focuses on muscles to correct imbalances in the body’s energy system (also involving diet and exercise regimens).
  • Feldenkrais Method uses specific movements to retrain the body to function at peak efficiency.
  • Reflexology applies pressure to certain reflex points on the feet and hands to help the body heal itself.
  • Rolfing involves the manipulation of the muscles and connective tissue to realign the body within the field of gravity.

A trained practitioner is needed to perform any of these bodywork therapies.

Osteopathy for Bursitis — Treatment involves aligning the spine, mobilizing the joints, and correcting posture to help blood flow freely in the body.

Heat Pack: After the initial swelling has been brought down (usually about three to four days), heat from a heating pad or heat pack will not only feel good but will get rid of excess fluid by increasing circulation.

Yoga – The physical postures and breathing exercises comprising the practice of yoga have long been proven by scientific research to promote feelings of relaxation while simultaneously strengthening the body. Research conducted since the 1970s has shown that regular yoga practice not only relieves stress, and stressful emotions such as anxiety and depression, but also improves blood pressure rates and overall cardiovascular health. Yoga is also effective for reducing pain, improving gastrointestinal and respiratory function, and for improving cognitive function and enhancing sight and hearing.

Note: If you are just beginning to explore yoga, it is recommended that you initially do so under the guidance of a trained yoga instructor who can guide you to become aware of the subtleties involved in each yoga posture as well as the corresponding method of breathing.

Qigong– Is a wonderful form of exercise, breath work and meditation to relieve stress and tension in the body.  See article section for more information about the art of qigong.
