What is Shoulder Bursitis?

And why is your bursitis not getting better?

In cases of bursitis of the shoulder, it is most commonly the subacromial bursa that is causing the pain.  

This causes:


Pain on the front and top of the shoulder and sometimes down as far as the upper arm.


Pain lifting the arm making simple things like dressing and brushing your hair difficult.


Pain lying on that side in bed causing difficulty sleeping, ultimately reducing your energy levels and well-being during the day.

There are often other structures involved such as the rotator cuff, muscles and tendons.  If these are not properly addressed and the shoulder isn’t treated as a whole, it tends to take some time for this issue to resolve.

It is common for people to have injections to the area without improvement and many people start to worry that the problem isn’t going to go away. 

The Shoulder Bursitis Program

Here at Power Physiotherapy we have helped 1000s of patients just like you with our 3 Step Shoulder Bursitis Program

1. Comprehensive Consultation and Diagnosis

Our knowledgeable and experienced team will conduct a comprehensive consultation.

A condition called tendinopathy is often present along side bursitis but often missed, preventing full resolution of your pain.

This step begins with accurate diagnosis to make sure we target what is causing the pain.

Step 2 – Exceptional Hands On Treatment

Here at Power Physiotherapy we are proud of our reputation for providing an exceptional hands on treatment. 

Your treatment will be tailored to your specific injury and circumstances. It may include:


Soft and deep tissue techniques, including trigger point therapy, to address tension and/or shortening in your muscles.


Gentle hip mobilisation techniques


Dry Needling.

Step 3 – Improve Performance

Whether your goal is to be able to:


Lift your grandchildren again.


Get back to the gym.


Sleep through the night.

Our 3rd step is vital to make sure that you have the strength in the muscles around your shoulder joint, to get back to doing the things you love without pain or restriction.

This will involve a tailored combination of stretching and strengthening rehabilitation techniques based on the latest research.

How Many Treatments Will I Need?

Every shoulder bursitis case is different and each treatment program is tailored to suit your specific circumstances and goals.

The number of treatments varies from person to person depending on a number of factors such as how long the injury has been present and the severity of the pain.
