Oklahoma Pain Treatment Centers: Decreasing Pain From Bursitis

Have you been diagnosed with bursitis? As is the case with many conditions, the most common sign that something is wrong is pain. Bursitis happens when the bursa is damaged. The bursa is a sac filled with lubricating fluid located between tissues such as bones, muscles, tendons, and skin. Luckily, steroid injections have been known to help some of our pain management OKC patients find relief from the inflammation.

Things like poor posture, misaligned joints, tight muscles, abnormal foot biomechanics, the age of tendons, and irritated nerves all play their role in the bursa’s condition. In most cases, the damage caused to the bursa is usually due to either overuse or sudden impact. Some examples of activities that cause bursitis include, but are not limited to:

  • Gardening

  • Carpentry

  • Shoveling

  • Painting

  • Scrubbing

  • Tennis

  • Golf

  • Skiing

  • Throwing

  • Pitching

Most Oklahoma Pain Treatment Centers patients report a feeling of irritation located in areas like the elbows, shoulders, hips, knees, and even the Achilles tendon. None of these problems are completely untreatable, and Oklahoma Pain Treatment Centers therapists can offer injection therapy that is often very effective for this condition.

Our Oklahoma Pain Treatment Centers therapist is able to focus on very specific areas via various types of injections in order to target the source of your pain and relieve it. By using strategic methods, our Oklahoma Pain Treatment Centers therapist can inject specific joints to improve your range and quality of motion in the affected area. Many patients have shared that they felt relief, a decrease in inflammation, and faster recovery after just one visit! Of course, not every patient is lucky enough to see results after just one treatment, but we hope to make everyone feel better than they did before they walked in the door.

If you have a habit of doing the same action repeatedly on a regular basis and feel pain in any of the areas mentioned above, it’s possible that you could have bursitis. If you’d like to know more about getting treatment for this pain, feel free to contact our Oklahoma Pain Treatment Centers team at 405-751-0011.
