Bursitis is a painful condition caused by inflamation of the bursae, the small fluid-filled pads that act as cushions among your bones and the tendons and muscles near your joints. Therapeutic massage not only helps manage the associated pain, but increases blood flow and removes toxins from the bursae.

So, What Exactly is a Bursa?

A bursa is a closed, fluid-filled sac whose functions is to cushion and provide a gliding surface to reduce friction between tissues of the body around joints. The major bursae (bursae is plural for bursa) are located adjacent to though there are hundreds of them throughout the body. When the bursa becomes inflamed, the condition is known as bursitis.
Once a bursa becomes irritated and inflamed, recovery time can be a surprisingly long process requiring a change in activity for a half year or longer to allow the bursa to heal. It can be next to impossible at times to keep from re-injuring the bursa because it's just not possible to stop everything and immobilize the joint properly. Everyone has demands on them that keep them going and in the process a bursitis injury can be prevented from healing. What ends up happening is that we continually irritate the injured bursa, prolonging the healing time more and more as we do so.
