Subacromial Bursitis

Ditch the Shoulder Shuffle: Conquering Subacromial Bursitis with Braybrook Physio & Allied Health Clinic

Shoulder pain got you feeling all wonky? You might be grappling with subacromial bursitis, a sneaky culprit that disrupts your overhead moves and throws a wrench in your daily life. But fear not, fellow shoulder warriors! At Braybrook Physio & Allied Health Clinic, we’re experts at deciphering shoulder woes and guiding you back to pain-free days.

The Bursal Blues

Picture this: a tiny sac between your shoulder blade and rotator cuff tendons, called a bursa. Its job? Smooth gliding for those tendons. But overuse, injury, or even bad posture can lead to inflammation – that’s subacromial bursitis in a nutshell.

Ouch, My Shoulder Says

The telltale signs of this shoulder troublemaker are:

  • Pain and tenderness: A dull ache or sharp twinge in the front and side of your shoulder, especially with overhead activities.
  • Stiffness and weakness: Reaching for that top shelf or throwing a frisbee become painful struggles.
  • Nightly nag: Sleeping comfortably on the affected side? Forget it! This pain loves to crash your slumber party.
