Bursitis and Tendonitis

* required in order to determine the appropriate treatment intervention suited to your specific needs. The physiotherapist will first conduct an evaluation to determine what structure is affected and how serious the problem is. Then they will develop a tailor made treatment for bursitis.

Physiotherapy could include such things as ultrasound, electrotherapy, acupuncture, dry needling, manual therapy, soft tissue release, or taping.

With bursitis, there is often a muscular imbalance around the joint affected. So, resolution of the symptoms will typically occur once you re-balance this, by working with the physiotherapist to stretch what is tight, strengthen what is weak and perform specific exercises which will stabilize the affected area.


An appointment with our physiotherapist is recommended to determine appropriate treatment intervention suited to your specific needs.
