Bursitits Treatment

bursitis elbowAt joints level are found some bags of fluid that ensure smooth and frictionless movement. When these bags are inflamed bursitis occurs.

Bursitis is manifested by pain. The pain comes and goes suddenly for about 5 days. Due to the sudden disappearance, bursitis pose in choosing the correct treatment and also is a bad thing for those with this condition.

There is no specific treatment for bursitis, but there are things you can do:

  • When the pain appears stop the work that you do and allow the joint to rest.
  • If the joint is hot put ice on it for 10 minutes, then pause and resume ten minutes with ice. We do not indicate to put heat on a hot joint. Ice reduces swelling and stimulates the constriction of blood vessels.
  • Alternate hot and cold. Make this maneuver only if your joint is cold and the pain is bearable. Alternate ice for 10 minutes with 10 minutes of a warm compress, then put ice again.
  • Medicines for pain. An effective drug is ibuprofen (calling form of ibuprofen, Nurofen, ibalgin). Take this medicine after eating. If you do not tolerate ibuprofen, taking aspirin.
  • After 5 days when the pain is not acute, try a cure with castor oil. On the hurting joint apply castor oil and massage gently. After applying oil, put a cotton compress over the joint and then a warm compress.
  • If the pain disappeared we suggest you to do gentle exercises with the affected joint. Move left, right, in a circle. But do not overdo it. Do this for a few minutes, several times a day.
  • You repeatedly do bursitis? We recommend taking flaxseed oil. This oil contains a high amount of omega 3 acids. The oil can be consumed by adding it to salads (1-2 tablespoons). Do not consume this oil chronically.
