What is bursitis?

Bursitis is the inflammation of the bursa, a small, fluid-filled sac that serves to reduce friction between bones and other moving parts in the joints.

What is bursitis?

Bursitis is the inflammation of the bursa, a small, fluid-filled sac that serves to reduce friction between bones and other moving parts in the joints. The inflammation may result from arthritis in the joint, from injury, or infection of the bursae. Bursitis produces pain and tenderness and may limit the movement of nearby joints.

Bursitis is associated with strenuous activity, particularly among manual workers and athletes. However, it can also affect otherwise sedentary people who push their bodies past reasonable limits. Warming up before strenuous exercise and cooling down afterward is the most effective way to avoid bursitis and other strains affecting the bones, muscles, and ligaments.

The supplements/herbs recommended are very similar to the one for tendinitis. See the list below:

Vitamins and minerals, especially vitamin C

Taking a vitamin C supplement is important, since vitamin C plays a major role in the prevention and repair of injuries. Deficiency of vitamin C is associated with defective formation and maintenance of tendon and bursal tissues. In addition to vitamin C, vitamin A and zinc are important not only for their wound-healing properties but also for their antioxidant effects.

Omega 3

Omega 3 fatty acids are also famous for their anti-inflammatory properties. To benefit from them, the simpler solution is to take Fish oil supplements. See dosage below.

Dosage

  • Vitamin C: 500 to 1,000 mg one to three times per day
  • Vitamin D3: 2,000 to 4,000 IU per day (ideally, measure blood levels and adjust dosage accordingly)
  • Omega 3: 3,000 mg EPA + DHA per day until symptoms resolve, then 1,000 mg EPA + DHA per day thereafter
