East Tennessee Spine & Sport is your go-to provider for
Subacromial Bursitis

Subacromial bursitis refers to the inflammation and irritation of the subacromial bursa, a small fluid-filled sac located between the rotator cuff tendons and the acromion bone of the shoulder. It is often caused by repetitive overhead motions, trauma, or underlying shoulder conditions. Symptoms of subacromial bursitis include shoulder pain, swelling, tenderness, and limited range of motion. Treatment options may include rest, activity modification, pain management techniques, physical therapy, and in some cases, corticosteroid injections or surgical intervention to alleviate inflammation and promote healing.
Subacromial bursitis is typically treated with a combination of conservative measures to alleviate symptoms and promote healing. Treatment may involve rest, activity modification, and the application of ice or heat to reduce inflammation and pain. Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) may be recommended to manage pain and inflammation. Physical therapy exercises focusing on strengthening the shoulder muscles, improving posture, and enhancing range of motion are often prescribed. In some cases, corticosteroid injections may be utilized to provide targeted relief. The specific treatment approach depends on the severity and individual patient factors, and consultation with a healthcare professional is essential for personalized treatment planning.
