Pain Management in Knoxville, TN

Experts from Right Diagnosis report almost 9 million people in America battle bursitis. Which makes it ultra-important that you take a few minutes to learn what you can do about it from experienced Knoxville bursitis specialists.

What is Bursitis?

The bursa acts like a pillow between your tendons, joints, bones and muscles, according to experts at Medical News Today. These sacs are filled with fluid and are called bursae and when they become inflamed you will feel pain or bursitis.

You have over 160 bursae in your body.

Common Triggers

  • Personal Injury
  • Overuse
  • Infection – Typically from arthritis or gout.

Although any area in your body can be forced to deal with this type of pain, bursitis typically causes:

  • Shoulder Pain
  • Hip Pain
  • Knee Pain
  • Elbow Pain
  • Bum Pain
  • Ankle Pain
  • Thigh Pain

V.I.P. – Many people with bursitis either try and wait it out or seek treatment themselves. If you suspect you are suffering make sure you get a proper diagnosis and pain treatment regimen that will put you on the road to recovery. If you are constantly dealing with pain it’s very difficult for your body to heal.

Key Bursitis Symptoms Include:

  • Tenderness with or without movement
  • Pain that intensifies with pressure or movement
  • Noticeable swelling
  • Inability to move

Septic Bursitis is caused by infection where you may experience…

  • Hot to the touch of the affected area
  • Intense redness in the affected area
  • Fever

The main cause of this painful condition is an injury, some affected areas could be…

Shoulder – This is often caused by repeated action reaching overhead. Volleyball players also deal with this because of the forced repetitive reaching and the hitting motion (orthopedic).

Hips – Often athletes training for running events are affected.

Clergyman’s Knee – Kneeling on hard surfaces falls here. Floor cleaners and gardeners may be at increased risk.

Ankle – Wearing the wrong type of shoes, walking too much, and in particular figure skaters and hockey players need to beware.

Thigh – Stretching may cause this damage.

Buttocks – Long distance bikers often suffer from this because of long periods of time on a hard surface.

Tennis Elbow – Squash players, tennis players, and golf players often deal with this because of the intense repeated arm motions.
