Bursitis Injury Facts Part 2:

Normally, bursa are flat and contain very little fluid. An injured bursa however, is swollen with fluid and not so flat anymore.


The most common bursitis injuries are:
Prepatellar Bursitis (housemaid's knee),
Superficial Infrapatellar Bursitis (clergyman's knee),
Trochanteric Bursitis (hip),
Olecranon Bursitis (student's elbow) and
Subacromial Bursitis (shoulder bursitis).


Deep Bursae separate bare areas of bone from overlapping muscles.
Superficial Bursae separate bare areas of bone from skin or tendons.


Deep Bursae develop in the womb.

Superficial Bursae develop within months to several years after birth.


Household names for various bursitis injuries include: Popeye's Elbow, Miner's Elbow, Weaver's Elbow, Housemaid's Knee, Hod-Carrier's Shoulders, Dustman's Shoulders, Student's Elbow, and Clergyman's Knee

 


Bursitis Injury Facts Part 3:


On occasion, bacteria can invade a bursa and cause an infection. An infected bursa is known as septic bursitis and can be life-threatening if left untreated. So make sure you see a physician!


Septic bursitis is most common in knee joints and elbow joints as the bursae in these locations are close to the skin and most susceptible to bacterial invasion.


It is not uncommon for bursitis to be misdiagnosed as arthritis.


Bursitis is best avoided by staying in shape, taking frequent breaks from repetitive or laborious tasks and cushioning joints if on them for long periods (ie. kneepads for gardening).


A Bursa can swell to a surprisingly large size. In cases of heavy swelling, your physician may choose to drain fluid from the swollen bursa. If a lump is present in chronic bursitis cases, excision may be required.


Clergyman's Knee comes from a more upright posture when kneeling in comparison to Housemaid's Knee. Patients suffering from gout or syphilis can be at higher risk of contracting Clergyman's Knee.

Use Your Body's Natural Healing System
to Treat Your Bursitis Injury!


Deep Tissue Therapy & Why You Need It

Your body can heal itself! In fact, your body started healing the moment you injured yourself and it's the blood in your body that makes it all happen.

Your blood is the transport mechanism for everything that's good inside of you. It carries oxygen, nutrients, water and antibodies.

Bringing proper blood flow to your injured bursa is essential to healing. Unfortunately, when you injure your body, you stop moving and the swelling sets in. That means your vital blood flow can be reduced to a trickle!

Swelling, inflammation and lack of joint movement reduce the flow of blood to your injury. When you are talking about trying to increase the flow of blood to the bursa, you are at a huge disadvantage since there is very little blood flow in the bursa to begin with. This is one of the main reasons why bursitis continues to persist over long periods of time.

After a couple days of cold treatment, the swelling should come down - but know that this is a critical time! After the inflammation is gone it may feel like you can return to your regular sports, hobbies, exercise or other activities - but your bursa (and surrounding tissue) is in a weakened state, unstable, and still injured. Even the slightest movement in the wrong direction can worsen the injury and increase the swelling yet again. Most "weekend warriors" and amateur athletes will start going back to what they were doing before they suffered from bursitis, and that's where they get it wrong. Medical professionals know that the injury is still there even if the pain is gone.

Blood Flow - the natural healing process in your body - needs assistance for such injuries because blood flow is greatly restricted when you are immobile. When treating bursitis injury or really any type of soft tissue injury (ie. tendinitis, muscles spasm, etc), an effective therapy will increase blood flow to the injury while the joint is immobile. This increase in blood flow will accelerate the body's own ability to heal itself. This is especially true with bursitis, as mobility is almost impossible (too painful) and there is almost no blood flow to the bursa to start with!

There are a LOT of people out there that do not understand how effective A TShellz Wrap treatment really is. Once initial swelling has reduced, start the T•Shellz Wrap treatments - you will be absolutely astonished at how effective these treatments are for bursitis!

Building strong healthy tissue is part of the healing process and needs to be dealt with asap to minimize your chance or re-injury or overcompensation injuries. You can help your bursa during this healing process by increasing blood flow by using a T•Shellz Wrap.

With regular use of the TShellz Wrap:

  • your pain will be reduced.
  • damaged soft tissue in the treatment area will heal faster
  • the range of motion in the treatment area will increase *

* Chapter 9 of "Therapeutic Heat and Cold", 4th edition. (amazon.com link - Ed. Justus F. Lehmann, M.D., Williams, and Wilkin)

No matter what has caused your bursitis and/or tendonitis, it's important to reduce pain, swelling and inflammation as soon as possible. Getting rid of your swelling is the 1st, most important, step in your recovery process. Getting rid of swelling will reduce the amount of tissue damage happening and open up blood vessels so the soft tissue in your joint (bursae, tendons, muscles, ligaments) can receive more blood flow.

Increasing blood flow is then a priority to bring in all the essential elements needed for natural healing within your own body. You blood flow is the key to speeding up the healing process of your soft tissue, increasing your range of motion, and ensuring that you won't suffer from this painful condition for years.


Deep Tissue Therapy = Accelerated Healing Power for Your Bursitis

If you want to heal quickly, you need to keep your blood moving and that's where Deep Tissue Therapy comes in.

What is Deep Tissue Therapy? It's a substantial increase in the flow of blood to your injured bursa without the need to exercise your weakened joint.

Have you seen what happens when you add water to a flower wilted from drought? An injured bursa is much like a "wilted" flower; your body wants to heal the injury, but needs lots of nutrients to do it. Blood brings new life to your cells by delivering healing nutrients and oxygen that are vital to your tissue. In addition, the blood carries away toxins and cellular waste cleaning the area and healing it faster. Without a good supply of blood, your bursa and surrounding tissue simply won't heal properly.

Both during and after the treatment, your injured tendons, ligaments, bursae and muscles will experience increased blood flow even though your body is at rest.

In order to get maximum blood flow, you need to help your body stimulate blood flow. Deep Tissue Therapy is the fast, easy and pain-free way to increase blood flow and speed healing. It's the key to dealing with your soft tissue injury properly.

When you apply a TShellz Wrap to your bursa you are applying energy waves to the area - much of which is released as heat - deep down in the body. This heat incites more blood flow (natural response from the body). Increased blood flow boosts your body's own healing process.

During a treatment, and for quite some time after you finish, the treated area will experience increased blood flow even though your body is at rest. It's a soothing sensation and extremely effective.

T•Shellz Wrap = The Perfect DTR Therapy Delivery Tool

With Deep Tissue Rehab your bursa and joint are constantly being fed with healing, nutritious, oxygen and energy filled blood. This is exactly what your body needs to heal.



How a T•Shellz Wrap Works

A T•Shellz Wrap is purely a Deep Tissue Therapy workhorse! Our client results reflect that they are highly effective home treatment devices for deep soft tissue and joint problems such as hamstring muscle strains, bursitis, tendonitis, minor soft tissue tears and impingements.

T•Shellz Wraps contain an Energy Pad which is very flexible and will conform around your leg or arm. The Energy Pad emits a uniform wave of healing electromagnetic energy over the entire treatment area. This energy travels down deep inside your muscle, cartilage and tendons/ligaments - into the underlying soft tissue, stimulating the blood flow needed to heal your injury. It's the electromagnetic energy that's crucial to the healing process.


Electromagnetic Energy = Increased Blood Flow = More Oxygen, More Nutrients and Less Toxins = Faster Healing

The unit plugs into a wall outlet to get its power. It has a special signal controller which can be set for 3 different power levels of application (3=High, 2=Medium, 1=Low). The cord is long enough that you can sit or lie comfortably and watch TV, read or surf the net while you're using it.


T•Shellz Wraps - The Secret to Accelerated Healing

Electromagnetic energy waves aren't Heat Waves. When they're emitted from the TShellz Wrap they penetrate right through your skin and fat layers until they get deep down into your joint. After the electromagnetic energy is absorbed by your tissue it transforms into Deep Tissue Regeneration Therapy. That's Healing Power - Right at the Source of your Bursitis Injury!

Increase blood flow to heal bursitis

Deep heat from the TShellz Wrap will significantly increase blood flow to your bursa - period. It's a flexible, electromagnetic therapeutic wrap and its a medical device that can be used at home.

With regular use of a TShellz Wrap:

  • Your pain will be reduced.
  • Deep heat will be targeted at your injured bursa - your body will respond to this heat by inducing an increase in blood flow to the heated area in an attempt to cool it. An increase in blood flow is generally considered to be an accelerant to soft tissue healing.
  • Your joints will have a larger range of motion and increased extensibility of collagen tissue in your joint and around your bursa. (Chapter 9 of "Therapeutic Heat and Cold", 4th edition. (amazon.com link - Ed. Justus F. Lehmann, M.D., Williams, and Wilkin)



Wrap the T•Shellz Wrap around your injury, plug it in and let the Energy Pad do the work!

 


The Relationship Between Heat & Healing

Deep Tissue Rehab is a new advancement to an age old therapy. The promotion of blood flow to promote healing has been a standard medical therapy for over 100 years. For centuries, doctors, therapists and moms worldwide have used warmth as a means of increasing blood flow. Hot water bottles and their variations have been used to soothe sore joints and muscles forever.

Some heat therapies you may have tried such as heating pads, hot water bottles, moist towels, and warm baths only create a superficial heat near the surface of the skin. There are 2 reasons for this:

  1. The layer of fat beneath the surface of the skin (subcutaneous layer) actually works as an insulator and reduces the amount of heat that can penetrate into your soft tissue.
  2. Your body senses a temperature increase on your skin and increases blood flow in the skin layer to flush away the heat.

Basically, a heating pad or hot water pad gives you Deep Tissue Rehab, but at the skin layer instead of where it is needed most - at the location of the injury!

Deep heat versus surface heat matters because to effectively increase blood flow where you need it, you need the heat effect to occur at the location of the damaged tissue.

To get the blood flow deep - where you need it, you need the electromagnetic power of the TShellz Wrap.

The problem with applied heat (aka 'surface heat') is that it only works on the skin and doesn't penetrate deep into the underlying tissue where most of the injured tissue really is. A warm bath is a similar concept but it still relies on the hot water to heat your skin, and your skin to heat the fat below the skin, and the fat to heat the soft tissue, and so on. It works to some extent, but there are much more effective options.

Deep Tissue Rehab is all about promoting blood flow deep within your joint, around your bursa. You feel it right away. And unlike other heating methods that are hot on your skin, a TShellz Wrap increases blood flow in the soft tissue below your skin - right down to the core. When you use TShellz Wraps for deep heat, the body responds with increased blood flow deep within your injured joint - and that's exactly what you want.


Why is our DTR Therapy a Plug-In Unit and not Battery Powered?

We field a lot of calls from our customers that want to know why our T•Shellz Wraps don't come with a battery powered option. The simple answer is that our T•Shellz Wraps use a lot of power. We tried looking at batteries, but we found that a high capacity (and high cost) lithium-ion battery would last barely long enough for an adequate treatment time - and then it would need to be recharged. The amount of power that our wrap uses over such a short span of time should really drive home the fact that our T•Shellz Wraps are real, industrial strength treatment devices; currently, for us to provide a battery option for our wraps we would have to reduce the level of electromagnetic energy (ie. treatment power) emitted from this product. The lower the energy output, the less effective the device will be which is why our TShellz Wrap units are plug-in units only.


Use a TShellz Wrap to
Deal with Scar Tissue & Prevent Re-Injury!


Do you have a tender, swollen bursa or a chronic bursitis injury that's painful, sore and always seems to get re-injured? This could be a sign that you have a lot of scar tissue in the muscle, tendons or ligaments surrounding your bursa. The growth of scar tissue is ultimately what causes stiffening in your around your bursa, restricting movement and flexibility in your joint.

Hamstring Muscle tears heal with scar tissue, restricting movement and causing pain and stiffness.

During the healing process your body will fill in tears in the tendons, muscles or ligaments surrounding your bursa with dense, brittle tissue called "scar tissue". The human body will use scar tissue as a temporary solution and will try to build the scar tissue as fast as possible to heal a strain or tear around your bursa.

Scar tissue in the tissue surrounding your bursa is one of the MAIN reasons why your bursitis just hasn't healed. Even when the inflammation is gone in your bursa, scar tissue will still be there around your bursa, to reduce elasticity of your surrounding tissue and range of motion in your joint. On-going issues with scar tissue can even result in additional soft tissue injuries to nearby tendons, ligaments, muscles, joint instability, or surgery may be required to remove all or part of your bursa (a bursectomy).

Scar tissue will form fast to deal with and temporarily fix any tissue instability (tearing) around your bursa, but working fast doesn't mean that the job's done right. When scar tissue forms it doesn't come together as neatly as regular (healthy) tissue would. Scar tissue fibers will lay down over top of your injury in a cluttered, messy and jumbled up way.

This is how scar tissue works. The scar tissue that forms to fix your bursitis will be unorganized and won't line up properly with the healthy tissue surrounding the injury site. This scar tissue will also attach to everything in that area, including the surrounding healthy tissue as well. This can result in a long-term fusing together of the soft tissue that stiffens your joint reducing your mobility and making your bursitis even more painful!

Scar tissue is a major problem especially when it comes to a bursitis injury - causing your injury to take months or even YEARS to completely heal!



Time is the only way for your bursitis to really heal, but by applying conservative treatments such as the T•Shellz Wrap, you can speed the body's healing process, reduce scar tissue growth and reduce the chances of re-injury.


You can quickly soften scar tissue and prevent further injury to your bursa by increasing heat and blood flow to the damaged area. Treating yourself with a T•Shellz Wrap is the easiest and most effective way to accelerate your recovery and deal with stubborn scar tissue.

When applied before activity or work, the TShellz Wrap will also relax and lengthen your soft tissue to help improve your range of motion and prevent atrophy (wasting away) of your surrounding tissue.

Overall, continued treatment with an TShellz Wrap will maintain good health in your joint and significantly reduce your risk of re-injury.

It may seem hard to believe, but regardless of what type of muscle, bursa and/or tendon injury you have, our Leg TShellz Wrap will assist you in recovering from your injury faster and reduce the chance of degenerative conditions by maximizing blood flow where it's needed most, preventing further damage, and dealing with scar tissue.

So, if you're really looking for the best therapy to treat your bursitis; if you're looking for home treatment options to reduce inflammation, increase your range of motion, treat the source of your pain and strengthen your joints as fast as you possibly can; the T•Shellz Wrap, a Cold Compress or Ice Pack and a stretch/exercise routine (assigned by your physician or PT) are what you need. These therapies are the best home based approach to maximizing your injury recovery process.


When to use a Cold Compress or Ice Pack:

  • 24 to 72 hours after your initial injury or when you first notice pain and swelling to stop cellular damage, relieve pain, and decrease swelling.
  • After exercise, workouts or activity of any kind to prevent re-injury.
  • Before and after surgery during rehabilitation to control pre and post-surgery pain and swelling.
  • Anytime you feel your injured joint has been over-extended, over-worked, twisted, strained or sprained causing pain and swelling.
  • Anytime you have swelling, sharp throbbing pain or inflammation.
  • Any other situation where you need to draw the pain and inflammation out of your bursa and/or surrounding soft tissue.

When to use a T•Shellz Wrap:

  • When the swelling is down (usually after applying cold compression to the injury over 24 to 48 hr period).
  • BEFORE getting out of bed in the morning. BEFORE going to bed at night.
  • BEFORE exercise, workouts or activity of any kind to increase elasticity of ligaments,muscles & tendons and decrease chance of re-injury.
  • AFTER surgery (once the skin wound has healed over) to increase post-surgery healing rate and minimize scar tissue growth at the surgery location.
  • Anytime BEFORE you feel you might undertake activity that will put significant strain on the injury area.

New Technology For The Best Therapy Available!

Leg TShellz Wrap for Hamstring Spasm

We are constantly being asked, is it like a heating pad, is it like infra-red, is it like ultrasound, does it use a magnet? The truth is that the wraps are what we believe to be the most highly effective Deep Tissue Regeneration Therapy products out there, directing electromagnetic energy (EMEnergy) to the treatment site. The application of EMEnergy has a direct effect of 1) boosting blood circulation and 2) releasing heat energy deep within injured soft tissue.

It is a product that has been developed specifically to heal soft tissue in this fashion. IT WORKS unbelievably well! You can be certain of this, as we give full refunds if this is not the case.

While you're treating your bursitis and tendinitis with a TShellz Wrap, the increase in blood flow will also whisk away inflammation.

The Energy Pad stimulates all the tissue beneath it evenly. The parts of your body that are healthy will rapidly respond with increased blood flow and there will be little sensation in that area.

As your body continues to heal from treatment to treatment you'll also notice a decrease in pain and range of motion will improve (deep heat increases elasticity and length of soft tissue). So not only do you heal, but with every treatment you can feel the difference - you can tell your injury is getting better.



T•Shellz Wraps:
Comfortable, Effective and Easy To Use

  • T•Shellz Wraps are very comfortable to wear. The shell is soft and very flexible. The edges are soft and will not irritate your skin.

T•Shellz Wraps for Recovery from Bursitis Surgery (or any other soft tissue surgery)

click to buy the tshellz wrap

For Post-Surgery Recovery, cold is recommended by doctors to treat your pain in a natural, non-addictive way and to reduce swelling.

After the incision site has healed, use our TShellz Wraps to speed recovery and minimize re-injury risk via Deep Tissue Regeneration Therapy. Using the TShellz Wrap as soon as pain & swelling has reduced following your surgery will minimize scar tissue growth around the surgery that forms as you heal. Treating scar tissue is one of the most important steps following surgery, especially in a muscle or tendon as scar tissue growth will directly impact their ability to extend and contract.

Leaving post-surgery scar tissue untreated can lead to stiffness, chronic pain, osteoarthritis or other chronic conditions. You're more likely to end up with another soft tissue injury if you choose not to deal with scar tissue that develops from surgery. The deep heat from a T•Shellz Wrap encourages more oxygen and nutrients to flow to the area which will speed healing and improve the strength of soft tissue in your joint.

Bursitis Inflammation Facts:

Bursitis is the inflammation or irritation of the bursa.


Bursitis is most often caused by repetitive, minor impact on the area, or from a sudden, more serious injury.


Bursitis high-risk activities include gardening, raking, carpentry, shoveling, painting, scrubbing, tennis, golf, skiing, throwing, and pitching.


If bursitis persists and is left untreated, calcium deposits can form within the bursae. These calcium deposits limit range of motion and can lead to a permanently stiff joint.


Incorrect posture at work or home and poor stretching or conditioning before exercise can also lead to bursitis.
