Bursitis is a painful condition where the fluid-filled pad (called a bursa) that acts as a cushion for a joint becomes irritated and inflamed. This is caused by overuse and abuse of our bodies. For the most part our bodies can adapt to the stresses and strains we encounter in daily life, but when we over-do it, then injury and subluxation happens. Chiropractic care can help with this problem by re-aligning the joint to restore proper motion and function, as well as relieve irritation of the surrounding nerves. The goal with this re-alignment is to allow the nerves to function properly so that the body can heal. Chiropractic addresses more than just the spine! At Saale Chiropractic we work with any moveable joints in the body, including shoulders, knees, elbows, wrists, etc.
