Bursitis indicates the inflammation of a tiny sac like tissue called bursa which remains filled with a fluid and acts as a cushion to absorb shocks between bones tendons joints and muscles. Due to vigorous and repetitive movement of the bone over bursa, inflammation occurs which leads to localised pain, swelling, redness, stiffness and warmth. The affected area is therefore unable to bear body pressure, causing immense pain. There are 160 bursae in the body. The most common sites of inflammation are shoulders, elbows, ankles, knee, buttocks, hips or thighs.
Treatment of Bursitis involves rest, compression with ice, intake of analgesics and anti-inflammatory medicines. However, Ayurvedic treatment for bursitis includes certain remedies which are very promising, cost effective and readily available. Owing to the side effects caused by the medications prescribed by physicians, ayurvedic treatment of Bursitis is preferred over other treatment methods.
